UNITED VOICES 4 PEACE IS A GLOBAL CULTURAL DIPLOMACY INITIATIVE FOSTERING A UNIVERSAL CULTURE OF PEACE THROUGH MUSIC AND THE ARTS
Our non-partisan platform uses the Arts to address and transform today’s global challenges.
UV4PEACE creates bridges between the diplomatic and cultural worlds, assisting public, and private entities to develop innovative forms of creative diplomacy.
UV4PEACE aims to unite different communities through the universal language of the Arts, creating inclusive spaces for the diverse voices of the world to meet, even in situations of conflict.
To carry our mission, we support underrepresented artists to promote diversity and inclusion as catalysts to peacebuilding and social justice through a model of empowerment & responsibility.
UV4PEACE pledges to advance the efforts to achieve the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals, with a special focus on Goals 5 (Gender Equality), 10 (Reduced inequalities), 16 (Peace & Justice) and 17 (Partnerships), helping to accelerate progress towards the 2030 agenda.
Our organization is proud to be formally associated to the United Nations Department of Global Communications.
