Artistic Expression: A Tool for Public Diplomacy

This week’s PD News headlines illustrated how artistic expression can help build stronger relationships and increase a state's cultural visibility. A Broadway play about the Oslo Accords debuts in London next week, while the Ministry of Culture in India worked with Myanmar to host the “Festival of India” in Mandalay. Other articles looked at George Balanchine’s use of ballet to connect the U.S. and the Soviet Union ​during the Cold War, the record number of attendees at Edinburgh International Festival and churches embracing streetwear.
