Special Events Area

Title: Libraries Lead: QNL Annual Forum for Library Professionals

Theme: GLAMs and Cultural Diplomacy

Galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAMs) across the world leverage soft power to promote diplomacy locally and between nations. Although cultural ambassadorship in memory institutions is under-represented in research, its significance is evident in collections, programming, exhibitions, and collaborations that represent national interests and international relations.

Join us as speakers from libraries, museums and cultural centers from around the globe share their cultural diplomacy initiatives such as repatriating cultural heritage items; facilitating cultural exchanges in the arts, sports, literature, music, science, business and more; creating cultural programs to improve relations between divergent groups; and exchanging ideas, values, and traditions to strengthen relationships and promote cooperation locally or internationally.
