As part of the activities organised to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the European Cultural Convention, the Council of Europe, in co-operation with the French Ministry of Culture and the City of Strasbourg, is organising a colloquy on “European culture: identity and diversity”, to be held in the auditorium of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Strasbourg on 8 and 9 September.

This event, which will be attended by more than 100 intellectuals, experts, figures from the world of culture and governmental and non-governmental representatives from all over Europe, is expected to lay down new guidelines for future Council of Europe programmes in the fields of education, culture, heritage, youth and sport.

''This colloquy is one of a string of events devoted both to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the European Cultural Convention and to the development of the future cultural agenda of the Council of Europe'', said Terry Davis, Secretary General of the Council of Europe at the opening of the colloquy.
