The Division for Gender Equality of UNESCO, in collaboration with the Permanent Delegations, has organized an art exhibition for International Women’s Day. Focused on the theme of the creativity of young women in shaping our future, this exhibition gathers creative expressions from all over the world.
The Permanent Delegations have nominated artists from 10 countries from each Regional Group of UNESCO. We are honored to host these artists, who are not only renowned in their region and internationally, but have also been commended for their work relating to gender equality and social justice. We cordially invite the audience to view these works of art, reflect and experience multiple perspectives of the creativity of young women and men in shaping our future.
