The Louis François Centre for UNESCO aims to raise awareness of artistic practice and the issues of climate change among the young people of the world. It strives to unite young people through the action of creating an international dialogue promoting the values of UNESCO.
Therefore UNESCO invite you to participate in their international visual arts competition and French language poetry competition. All participants’ work will be conserved in an artotheque, ‘Memories for the future’, as a recording of the creativity and talent of young people.
Since 1994, they have archived around 100 000 artistic creations from 150 countries! A unique treasure for the world…
