Paris – Korean soprano Sumi Jo will be named UNESCO Artist for Peace on April 3 in recognition of her commitment to the promotion of Korean culture all over the world, in particular through her support for the Organization’s “living human treasures” initiative and for her contribution to international cooperation in the service of peace and tolerance.

At a ceremony that will take place at 6 p.m. at Organization Headquarters, Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura will present a diploma to Ms Jo and will discuss with her ways in which she might support UNESCO’s efforts to set up a network of “living human treasures”.

Ms Jo, born in 1962, has come to be regarded as one of the finest voices in contemporary opera. The late conductor Herbert von Karajan said of her voice, that it was “a voice from above”.
“Human living treasures” are persons who embody to the very highest degree, the skills and techniques necessary for the production of selected aspects of the cultural life of a people and the continued existence of their cultural heritage. They are at the heart of a programme established by UNESCO in 1993 to promote the transmission of knowledge and skills by artists and artisans.

Journalists wishing to report on the ceremony must request accreditation from UNESCO’s Press Service: tel. +33 (0)1 45 68 17 47
