Organizing an Event
Concerts and Performances
UN Geneva hosts more than 10 concerts and performances each year, ranging from classical recitals to traditional and folk presentations. Concerts are a valuable part of the Cultural Activities Programme at the Palais des Nations, often introducing audiences to a completely new musical style or tradition. More than any other kind of event, concerts provide the opportunity for guests to interact and absorb different cultures; the artists are physically present in the Palais, often dressed in their national costumes, and carrying their national instruments.
All concerts and performances are proposed by Permanent Missions and international organizations in the UN system. The organizer may not charge an entrance fee for any event taking place at the Palais des Nations.
Invitations and Updates
Film screenings are popular features in the Cultural Activities calendar with many countries organizing film festivals to showcase their rich cinema traditions.
