The United Nations is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. 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.
- Contributors are asked to submit an A2 poster (420 x 594 mm / 16,5” x 23,4”) animated by using the augmented reality interface of Artivive.
- Up to two (2) artwork pieces can be submitted per artist.
- Group submissions by multiple artists or collectives are also permitted.
