Online art contest "The Future We Want" organized by the Perception Change Project of UN Geneva on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. The UN is marking its 75th anniversary at a time of great disruption for the world. Covid-19 is a stark reminder of the need for cooperation across borders, sectors and generations. Global dialogue – and action – is now more urgent than ever, to not let this pandemic lead to greater mistrust. 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. Art is often an enabling tool to foster a conversation about the kind of future we want and how we can empower youth in working towards it. To this end, the Perception Change Project in the Office of the Director-General of UN Geneva organized this worldwide art contest opened to all Geneva-based UN Missions. Each work of art on this website was submitted by Geneva-based permanent missions. All five continents are represented. You are now invited to rate your favorite works of art until June 18, keeping in mind the theme of the contest “The Future We Want”. The names of the artists and the countries of origin of the artworks are hidden to encourage a neutral voting process. The 10 artworks cumulating the highest rating scores will be selected and a jury of children will pick the 3 final winners during an exhibition at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. The 3 winners will have a book about their work produced by the jury and the Perception Change Project. A special prize will also be given by the Director-General of UN Geneva.
