With a firmly established cultural wing, the Embassy of Austria in Ottawa is geared to promoting public diplomacy, with directives coming straight from the ministry of foreign affairs in Vienna. Austria has 80 diplomatic missions around the world and now 30 of these missions each have a department dedicated solely to cultural diplomacy. Known simply as cultural forums, these departments promote Austrian culture through music concerts, exhibitions, historical symposiums and films.
