Intercultural Dialogue and Television

“On November 24, 25 and 26, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, in collaboration with the Chile’s Consejo Nacional de Television (CNTV) and the Universal Forum of Cultures 2010 of Valparaiso, organized a series of panel discussions focusing on “Television and Intercultural Dialogue.”

The opening ceremony was presided by the Mayor of Valparaiso, Honorable Mr. Jorge Castro and CNTV’s President, Mr. Herman Chadwick. Participants from Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Spain, South Africa, USA, Canada, Korea and UNESCO presented educational television programs from their respective countries and organizations where the emphasis is the creative use of television as a platform for addressing complex intercultural topics. Successful TV programming examples, such as the ones produced by South Korea’s Educational Broadcasting System; Argentina’s Ministry of Education Canal Encuentro; Mexico’s TV Educativa; South Africa Public Broadcaster; and Chile’s Novasur, were presented and discussed by an active and engaged audience. The closing ceremony of the 3-day seminar included the presentation of the PLURAL + 2010 Foundation Universal Forum of Cultures Award for the video “Mr. President”, produced by Press Pass TV of Boston, USA.”
