Conferences and Seminars

The Cultural Diverse Institute played an active role in the elaboration of the Convention of the Protection of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. As part of the International Network for Cultural Diversity, it was represented in annual meetings from 2002 to 2005 in South Africa, Croatia, China and Senegal. In 2006, we proudly organized the annual meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
