Threads on Threads: Cultural Heritage and Intercultural Dialogue (Sri Lanka)

Applied ICDThe European Union (EU) Delegation in Sri Lanka and the Maldives together with the Threads of History Museum presents ‘Threads on Threads: an exhibition on the textile heritage in Sri Lanka, South Asia and Europe’. The two-week exhibition is an initiative of the EU Cultural Heritage Series.

Because the exhibition showcases the longstanding trade relationship between Sri Lanka, South Asia, and Europe, it can be seen as a good way to encourage intercultural dialogue.

Cultural heritage can be an important vector for peace, reconciliation, mutual understanding, intercultural dialogue and sustainable development.
