  • To organize an event with Cultural Activities Programme: All proposals need to come from either a Permanent Mission or an International Organization. The Cultural Activities Committee (CAC) reviews and approves all new proposals at least three months prior to the actual event to allow enough time for the organization. Events in the frameworks of Cultural Activities have to be artistic in nature (e.g. paintings, concerts, artistic photography, etc.)

    All proposals have to be in line with UN values, shall not single out any Member States and shall not be too graphic. Venues can be pre-reserved on a first-come, first-served basis and will be confirmed once the CAC has approved the project. In case a project does not fit into the frameworks of Cultural Activities, it could be organized as a Side Event to a meeting or conference at the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG).
