Europe is facing nowadays very important issues on migration, identity and mobility. The political response on immigration has till now been confined to a security problem. Nevertheless, Europe must also step up to the challenge of deepening its knowledge and awareness of its own cultural diversity and try to shape a possible European identity steeped in diversities.

Through few European examples this seminar will try to answer the following questions via an interdisciplinary approach: How can intercultural dialogue, culture and arts, lead to a better understanding of cultural diversity and migration? More specifically: how museum and cultural programming can help us to think differently the question of migration, mobility and identity?

Participants: Saphinaz Amal Naguib (Norway), Sabrina Morena (Italy), Catherine Withol de Wenden (France), Carlos Mínguez Carrasco (Spain), Arnd Kolb (Germany), Katherine Watson (The Netherlands)
