In focus

According to Article VIII of UNESCO Constitution, Member States are invited to send their answers to the questionnaire for the follow up of the 1980 Recommendation concerning the Status of the Artist to: artist.status@unesco.org.

Artists and creators are vectors of cultural and artistic diversity. Their work is an essential contribution to the development of society and enables the individual to acquire knowledge and moral well-being.
