Culture needs dialogue and dialogue needs culture. Countries, regions, peoples and communities are becoming more and more intertwined and interdependent. We can no longer cut ourselves off. Cultural exchange contributes to mutual understanding between societies and peoples. Understanding other cultures can prevent prejudice and hate. Cultural exchange also enriches our own lives by inspiring new forms of artistic expression and providing fresh insights that broaden our horizons. Cultural exchange and activities can exercise a more powerful influence than military task forces or political delegations.
