About the Cultural Activities at UNOG
Art can become an important vehicle for each person, individually and in community with others, and groups of people to express their views. The artistic creativity is an important element for the development of vibrant cultures, which contributes to the functioning of societies.
The cultural policy pursued by the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) has developed considerably in recent years, thanks to the active participation of Member States.
This policy, which has as its objective multicultural dialogue and as its ultimate aim a culture of peace, is now the subject of a distinct, fully-fledged programme that has been entrusted to the Library, which reports directly to the Director-General.
The Library coordinates the policy and implements the programme, with the Chief Librarian chairing the UNOG Cultural Activities Committee.
