The Public Diplomacy Department supports and coordinates cultural activities from Peruvian artists who come to Washington, D.C., for presentations and exhibitions in all artistic fields. It organizes cultural and artistic performances at the Embassy’s Art Gallery. It also assists and provides American citizens with information about Peru’s culture.
The Department keeps close ties with authorities of the Department of State and other U.S. government and private entities, high authorities from prestigious universities, museums, galleries and all institutions involved in encouraging artistic life to promote Peruvian culture. It also monitors closely the cultural activities in which Peruvian cultural expressions and artifacts are involved.
The Embassy of Peru promotes the most significant values and expressions of the Peruvian Culture, whose diversity has a very long history. Culture is a factor of comprehensive development that has a multiplying effect on all aspects of the country’s foreign policy, including trade, investment, international cooperation and the reduction of poverty. It also allows the Embassy to be in close contact with the Peruvian community living in the United States.
