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. This year, the United Nations marks its 75th anniversary at a time of great disruption, compounded by an unprecedented global health crisis with severe economic and social impacts. Will we emerge stronger and better equipped to work together? Or will distrust and isolation grow further? 2020 must be a year of dialogue, when we come 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 is engaging with artists to spur action, build partnerships, inspire creative solutions. These collaborations encompass virtual exhibitions and experiences, musical performances, competitions, storytelling, and panel discussions.
