Event Details

 

The Welsh Government wants Wales to be an ‘ambitious, outward-looking country’, connected to the rest of the world through lasting economic, social and cultural links.

Wales has established tourism, trade and inward investment-led approaches to international engagement, but British Council Wales wants to see Wales further nurture the soft power capital of its world class educational, sporting, civil society, governance and creative assets.

This one-day international symposium will hear from leading international experts on soft power and explore the experiences of other small nations in harnessing their own soft power capital. The symposium aims to inspire leaders in Wales to think strategically about how Wales’ soft power can help all sectors, including education and culture, achieve their international ambitions. This will be ever more important after Brexit.

The symposium will focus on three key questions:

  • What are the value and benefits of international engagement for a small country?

  • What is Wales' soft power capital?

  • How can Wales and other small countries nurture their soft power capital?

Speakers will include:

  • Sir Ciarán Devane, Chief Executive British Council

  • Rebecca Matthews, CEO for European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017

  • Geraint Talfan Davies, Chair of Welsh National Opera

  • Iwan Davies, Chair of Global Wales and Senior Pro Vice Chancellor Swansea University

  • Kully Thiarai, Artistic Director, National Theatre Wales

 

The Institute of Welsh Affairs and the British Council are working in partnership to deliver this important discussion.

The British Council helps Welsh students, academics, teachers, artists, and others connect with people around the world.
