Public Diplomacy on Display

Jan 15, 2016
From cultural engagement on stage to digital discussions online, stories about art, music and theater were a key theme in this week’s PD News roundup. In Malawi, a Congolese hip-hop artist is using music diplomacy to combat xenophobia, while in New York, the annual Under the Radar international festival has sought to “demystify” theater by exploring the intersection of culture, identity and heritage through creative storytelling. Meanwhile, China showcased its cultural talents with its “five-act extravaganza,” Opera Warriors, during its North American debut, and South Korea opened a new digital portal “for the purpose of uniting cyber diplomats who want to build friendships with foreign friends.”
