The first Celtic Forum organized by Brittany Regional Council will welcome, Thursday August 3 in Rennes, the representatives of the various Celtic territories: Scotland, Ireland, Galicia, Cornwall, Wales, Asturias and Brittany.

Linked for centuries by a common cultural and linguistic heritage, as well as by a maritime space conducive to trade, the Celtic territories occupy an important place in the European geopolitical space. The Celtic Forum will thus be an opportunity for all to strengthen existing ties but above all to promote the place of the Celtic community internationally. On Friday a symposium on Celtic identity is scheduled at the Lorient Interceltic Festival, and the same day the 3rd Interceltic Business Forum will also take place in Lorient..
