Singapore hosts the "Diversity Matters" Forum September 23–25

Diversity Matters, a bi-annual Commonwealth forum on cultural diversity, will hold its next edition in Singapore, from 23 to 25 September 2010. Reflecting the growing importance being given to issues of cultural diversity in the Commonwealth, the Sixth Diversity Matters Forum is focusing on the theme of Social Cohesion and the Arts. Bringing artists, performers and practitioners across the creative industries and from all corners of the Commonwealth together with policy makers, the forum will identify, present, and exchange examples of dynamic practice in this field. Participants will consider the potential for the arts to do more to promote social cohesion and make recommendations to influence the Commonwealth's agenda to see increased support.
