The 2018 Art of Diplomacy Conference

The third-annual Art of Diplomacy Conference, hosted by the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center, returns to Missoula to continue the discussion of how culture is shaping our world. The event will be held in conjunction with Rocky Mountain Ballet’s 2018 Ballet Beyond Borders, an international dance competition and film festival held in Missoula, MT. The conference will feature performances from around the world, coupled with engaging panel discussions examining the role of art and movement in science, social justice, youth empowerment, leadership, diplomacy and more. The event is free and open to the public; a light lunch will be served. All attendees are asked to register for the event by January 12th.

The conference takes place from 9:30am-2:00pm on January 13th, 2018, in the University Center Ballroom on the University of Montana Campus, preceding the culminating event of the BBB competition: the awards ceremony and dance of champions.
