The main goal of this webspace is to provide information about the EU-sponsored project "Sharing Diversity", its results and resources. Additional material is posted where appropriate. If you have questions or suggestions, contact us on: info@ericarts.org.

  • Details of many interesting intercultural projects can be found in the Council of Europe/ERICarts "Compendium" online-database of good practices in Intercultural Dialogue (ICD). Have a look and submit your own experiences!
  • Some intercultural awards are found on this website, including e.g. the International Prize of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, which was again awarded in 2011. 
  • Learn more about the work of the Platform for Intercultural Europe which has been created in the context of the Open Method of Coordination (EU).
  • The Teamleader of the "Sharing Diversity" project, ERICarts' Executive Director Andreas Wiesand, has been asked to advise the UN "Alliance of Civilisations" (UNAOC) , whose activities focus on Intercultural Dialogue. In this context, an enhanced scope of the UNAOC and the preparation of the 4th annual Forum, staged December 10-13 in Doha/Qatar, are of particular interest.

About "Sharing Diversity":

The European Institute for Comparative Cultural Research  (ERICarts Institute) worked together with a group of 12 key experts / special advisors and 37 national correspondents to investigate concepts of intercultural dialogue, their challenges do different sectors such as culture, education, sports or youth, and main actors involved in their promotion.

The Study includes 50 recommendations to European and national actors, some of which were taken up by authorities and NGOs during, and beyond, the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue 2008 (EYID).

 Together with Odile Quintin, Director General for Education and Culture of the EU Commission, Project Team Leader and ERICarts Executive Director Andreas Wiesand presented the main results of the study during the official launch of the EYID on 7 January 2008 in Ljubljana (right photo).

During the following months, the study was presented at different occasions, for example on 23 January 2008 in Brussels at the EU Economic and Social Committee during the EUNIC Conference "Who is Afraid of Mobility? Cultural consequences of migration and mobility", and on 18 November 2008 in Paris at a French EU Presidency Conference for the EYID: "Nouvelles perspectives du dialogue interculturel en Europe".
