ICMEI Celebrated World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development

May 24, 2020

       World Cultural Day Celebrated by ICMEI On Lone

New Delhi: “Cultural events cancelled, cultural institutions closed, community cultural practices suspended, empty UNESCO World Heritage sites, heightened risk of looting of cultural sites and poaching at natural sites, artists unable to make ends meet and the cultural tourism sector greatly affected. The impact of COVID-19 on the cultural sector is being felt around the world,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah president of Marwah Studios and Patron to IFUNA- Indian Federation of United Nations Associations in a meeting with cultural heads of different schools on line.

“This impact is social, economic and political – it affects the fundamental right of access to culture, the social rights of artists and creative professionals, and the protection of a diversity of cultural expressions,” Dr. Marwah added also known as Global Cultural Minister.

During this time of mass confinement, billions of people are turning to culture as a source of comfort, well-being and connection. There has been a surge in the creation of, and access to, cultural content online – from virtual visits to museums and galleries, streaming of films and even community choirs via social media – showing its fundamental role as a source of resilience for communities. Major crises throughout history have often given rise to a renaissance of culture and an explosion of new forms of creativity, so vital for human progress.

Three-quarters of the world’s major conflicts have a cultural dimension. Bridging the gap between cultures is urgent and necessary for peace, stability and development.

“Cultural diversity is a driving force of development, not only with respect to economic growth, but also as a means of leading a more fulfilling intellectual, emotional, moral and spiritual life. This is captured in the culture conventions, which provide a solid basis for the promotion of cultural diversity. Cultural diversity is thus an asset that is indispensable for poverty reduction and the achievement of sustainable development,” expressed Dr. Sandeep Marwah forcefully.

The day provides us with an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the values of cultural diversity and to advance the four goals of the UNESCO Support sustainable systems of governance for culture, Achieve a balanced flow of cultural goods and services and increase mobility of artists and cultural professionals, Integrate culture in sustainable development frameworks, Promote human rights and fundamental freedoms
