UN x ARTIVIVE
The United Nations is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year (2020). To mark this special occasion, the UN Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs (DPPA) and Artivive are launching a call for artists to create posters about peacemaking and peacebuilding, which also utilize augmented reality technology.
The leading themes are “Futuring Peace”, “Bringing together those who have been fighting,” and “Creating a bridge across peoples in conflict zones”. Artists are invited to interpret and present their own vision of what peace means, based on the history of the UN’s actions.
The dove, a symbol of peace, has nestled inside the helmet of the UN forces, the only safe place, waiting for future peace.
