The UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human rights co-organizing “Spiritual Bridges” events in Rome from April 29 to May 4, 2015. The Chair was especially involved in two of the days’ events. First, April 29 saw the inauguration of the exhibit “Spiritual Bridges,” the presentation of the 3rd edition (2015) of the Bioethics Art Competition (www.bioethicsart.org), and a virtual presentation of 2011 and 2013 finalists’ artworks. The 2015 edition of the art competition invites artists from around the world to create a work of art (fine art or photography) about the theme “Express the Gift of Healing: Body, Mind and Spirit.” The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2015.
Second, on April 30 there was a round table on “Bioethics in a multicultural and inter-religious world,” in which experts from different religious and cultural traditions discussed the possibility and need of transcultural dialogue in order to foster convergence and cooperation as a contribution to better relations in society at a national and an international level.
