Call for papers: "Voci dal Mediterraneo - Riflessi d’Oriente" (Voices from the Mediterranean – Oriental Echoes).
Contributes sought for a collection.
Teatro Laboratorio Alkestis Centro di Ricerca e Sperimentazione, from now on Teatro Laboratorio Alkestis CRS, will realize, during 2007, a series of cultural initiatives that, offering to the public new possibilities of confrontation with not well-known themes, altered by the deforming mirror of mass medias, may contribute to intercultural dialogue e to the diffusion of the “culture of peace” promoted by UNESCO, besides proposing the image of Sardinia as a privileged centre of cultural mediation, image sustained by the forthcoming creation of a Museum for Mediterranean in the city of Cagliari.
A collection of papers on these topics will be realized.
The manifestation Voices from the Mediterranean – Oriental Echoes will be structured in 5 thematic initiatives of high scientific value, with conferences held by important experts in their own field, concerts, movie projections and photographical exhibitions.
The titles are:
Anam: Tiziano Terzani and Orient.
Silence conflicts (Africa).
Divine rapture (Sufism).
Mediterranean stars: Maria Carta and Umm Kulthum.
Someone Who Is not Like Anyone (Iran).
It will be possible, from May 25th 2007, downloading the whole manifestation program on the web site (Home Page > Voci dal Mediterraneo. Riflessi d’Oriente > Consulta il programma della manifestazione).
