Sweden, the UK and Scotland, Slovenia and Spain are distant neighbours. Some of them are islands; some have had a strong religious influence while others have a longstanding tradition of atheism or non-believers. We need those differences in order to have a rich dialogue and to escape from the solipsism into which institutions very often fall.
Culture is linked not only to a specific country or territory but also implies dialogue and exchange.
We are seeking inter-generational contributions, and above all cultural contributions, which can enrich the dialogue around the construction of what is now called European Cultural Identity.
The project is being led by of the Blanquerna Observatory of Media, Culture and Religion (Spain) and the other participating institutions are Edinburgh University (Scotland), the Sigtuna Foundation (Sweden) and the Slovene Museum of Christianity (Slovenia).
