U.S. Virtual Launch Event Art in Conversation

We invite you on Thursday, September 9th at 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST to joins us in the U.S. for its Virtual Launch Event.

U.S. Virtual Launch Event – Art in Conversation 

Art in Conversation is a platform whose role is to build, share, and inspire a relationship with art by having a direct conversation with the artists. 

Our vision is to encourage and support this prevailing relationship while opening the hearts and the minds of the American people about what truly is authentic Romania.

We invite you on Thursday, September 9th at 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST to joins us in the U.S. for its Virtual Launch Event.

Art In Conversation provides an interactive platform for dialogue between Romanian artists and American audiences and seeks to engage partnerships and collaborations.  
The platform aims to widen the perspectives into Romania and its rich and inspiring history, traditions, landscapes, and vibrant culture. 

We are looking forward to introducing American artists to this space and invite them to come and create in Romania for determined periods of time. Their works and hearts will carry the spirit of the Romanian lyrical universe wherever they will be. 

The event is being organized by Art in Conversation with the support of the Romanian Embassy to the U.S., Romanian Cultural Institute in New York, Consul General of Romania in LA, Cosmin Dumitrescu, PhD., RACC- LA Chapter, EuroAtlantic Business Club Sibiu, Romanians of DC, Bucharest Inside the Beltway, and See Beyond.
