The ‘UK-Iran Season of Culture’ will feature events that aim to promote, and develop the cultural relations ties between the UK and Iran.
Building on long-standing links and contemporary collaboration, the British Council’s UK-Iran Season of Culture will strengthen opportunities for greater cultural engagement, improve mutual understanding, and increase trust.
The UK-Iran Season of Culture will see performances, talks, discussions, and exhibitions across the UK highlighting the richness of Iran’s heritage, the dynamism of its contemporary culture, and the strength of and potential opportunities for UK audiences and organizations in engaging with Iran.
Danny Whitehead, the British Council’s Country Director Iran, said: “We believe that cultural relations are among the strongest and most important tools that the UK and Iran have for building trust and understanding which will be mutually beneficial for both countries. We are keen to support the UK’s wider diplomatic efforts to improve relations with Iran by developing the vitally important people-to-people links, which underpin support for political moves.”
Iranian Music, architecture, cinema, and theatre are the main representatives of Iran’s culture in this festival.
