Participants at the IFCCD congress will also take part on October 25, in Mons, in an international forum for the 10th anniversary of the UNESCO Convention on the diversity of cultural expressions proposed at the initiative of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, the City of Mons and the Mons 2015 Foundation. The UNESCO Director General, Ms. Irina Bokova and the General Secretary of the International Organization of La Francophonie, Ms. Michaëlle Jean, have both confirmed their presence at the world forum to which ministers of Culture and renowned artists are invited.
