Counterpoint, the think tank of the British Council, held a two day conference as part of their, The Inner Lives of Cultures project.
Taking place February 25-6, 2010, in Brussels, it brought together keynote speaker Tzvetan Todorov, leading lights from the academy in all its many shades, filmmakers, authors, translators, and cultural relations practitioners, from around the world.
They were there to talk about the Inner Lives of Cultures, in the hope that, by exploring the whispered, or tacit, discourses of individual cultures, the dialogue between us all can become deeper, more informed, and more productive.
Sun Shuyun, author, filmmaker, cultural commentator, and a speaker at the conference talks briefly here on what she takes from the event.
