The United Nations
New York, United States

The United Nations was created to rebuild a world in the aftermath of the second World War, and to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war. In 2020, the United Nations marked its 75th anniversary at a time of great disruption, compounded by an unprecedented global health crisis with severe economic and social impacts. Over a year of dialogue, we came together to discuss our priorities as a human family, and how we can build a better future for all.

In commemoration of the 75th anniversary, the United Nations engaged with artists to spur action, build partnerships, and inspire creative solutions. These collaborations encompass virtual exhibitions and experiences, musical performances, competitions, storytelling, and panel discussions.

As we look ahead to 2030 and beyond, will we emerge stronger and better equipped to work together? Or will distrust and isolation grow further? The United Nations continues to showcase the work of artists around the world as they respond to these questions.
