Debate: Art & Design in the World of the United Nations [Dutch]
Thursday 29 October, 19:00 - 21:00
This year the United Nations celebrates its 75th anniversary. Urgent social issues such as peace and security, human rights and economic and social development are high on the agenda. But perhaps less well known are the enormous art collections of the UN.
What importance do art and design have within the organisations of the UN? What role can engaged artists play within social themes? And how do art and diplomacy relate to each other? In collaboration with SIB-Groningen, the CBK will present a debate on Thursday 29 October in which speakers from the worlds of art, science, politics and business will talk to each other under the leadership of moderator Esther Didden.
Reserve your free tickets via the ticketlink or follow the debate online via the live stream.

Moderator: Esther Didden
