Delphic World Culture Forum (DWCF)
The IDC participated actively with its experts in the World Culture Forum Brazil 2004, and the IDC Secretary General was invited as one of the moderators of the Founding Symposium of the World Culture Forum Dresden 2007. However, both attempts to set a sustainable floor for arts and culture failed due to lacking intercultural experience, spiritual power, cultural pragmatism as well as dominance of bureaucratic minds.
However, the IDC is aware of the needs and importance of a Delphic World Culture Forum in today’s globalized world.
The DWCF is understood as a platform of the leaders and responsible personalities of the world in the field of arts, culture, tourism, media, politics and business to explore common interests and to establish sustainable contacts among each other. Considering its magnitude and structure parallel to the World Economic Forum Davos, and to make it a success, we require some time post and international experts to set a sustainable, practical sign in World Culture beside the valuable role of UNESCO.
The First Delphic World Culture forum is scheduled to be held in 2017 – and the IDC is researching for a designated city, country to hold this historic event setting benchmarks and milestone – in conjunction with the International Delphic Academy and in cooperation with the Greek Government – as being aware of the power of culture.
It is considered to hold the DWCF at an annual base in changing or permanent destinations.
When time has come – it is planned to move the permanent DWCF seat to Delphi, Greece, its place of origin.
No doubt economy has a prominent position at the world stage for a better tomorrow but to build a future solely on algorithmic / numbers is too much a danger. It is mainly forgotten in the business world that real, lasting values have no price tag – friendship, love, care human values in general we have to strengthen for the benefit of our children, grandchildren and future generations
The DWCF is supposed to give the leaders of the world on topics relating to culture, cultural education, financing of arts and culture and the preservation of cultural heritage its own floor – similar to the World Economic Forum.
Guidance to the Leaders
The World Culture Forum Delphi is supposed to give the leaders of the world on topics relating to culture, cultural education, financing of arts and culture and the preservation of cultural heritage its own floor – similar to the World Economic Forum Davos in Economy and Finance. It is to take place three days before the Opening Ceremony of the worldwide Delphic Games and worldwide Junior Delphic Games. Its program shall be designed around the Delphic Games Identity and reflect your Individual Focus as well.
The World Culture Forum Delphi shall represent a unique, once-in-a-lifetime learning experience for the decision makers in charge for arts, culture, education, cultural heritage, tourism, finance and related fields of activity for the development of a sustainable strategy to serve education, international understanding und peace in general. The following subjects of learning and sharing underlines the objectives of the World Culture Forum Delphi:
- Introduction of the Delphic Games of the Modern Era and its objectives
- Cultural Identity at city, region and nation level
- Branding through culture
- Linking Arts, Cultures and Education (ACE)
- Making ACE accessible to everybody
- Learning to know, to do and to share
The participants of the World Culture Forum Delphi shall at least share the Opening Ceremony of the worldwide Delphic Games and worldwide Junior Delphic Games in order to develop a practical sense for the aims and targets of the Delphic Games and the Delphic Movement as a whole.
Issues of arts and culture has been discussed thousands of times by wise personalities around the world for tenth of years – and never reached any conclusion. This is normal – due to sensitivity and importance of identity, artistic expression, educational contents and directions etc.
However, to discuss these themes you have to narrow the subjects and direction and here we take the six Delphic Arts Categories as our guideline. Even here we have to limit us to specific art disciplines finally to help the audience to understand.
Therefore, before we can discuss our subjects we have to pre-inform our guests about the Delphic Games, its history, values and mission etc. in advance to give them the opportunity to understand which can easier carried out through the Delphic Games, the Delphic Members and the newly initiated International Delphic Academy.
As guests of the DWCF the IDC considers Decision makers in the fields of Arts, Culture, Education and Tourism as well as the leading world organisations i.e. UNO, UNESCO, ASEAN, EU, etc. and institutes like International and national Cultural institutes, foundations, as well as artists, media, manager and business people.
Proposals and themes to be discussed are very much appreciated
