Virtual Art Exhibition: Colouring Outside the Lines

The first UNESCO RILA virtual art exhibition launched on 23 April 2021 and showcases over 70 pieces from all 23 members of the our Affiliate Artist Network. Since 2017, this network has brought together global artists, who work with and reflect on the role Arts and Languages play in bringing people together and strengthening social cohesion.

In paintings, photographs, videos, audio, poetry, music and 3D installations, the artists offer their perspectives on migration, integration and identity in a globalised world.

At the heart of Colouring outside the lines are three collaborative works, commissioned by UNESCO RILA. These artworks are specifically designed to stimulate critical reflection on our understanding of refugee integration through languages and the arts.

We invite you to step into their space and challenge you to imagine what an interconnected and more hospitable world could look like.

Exhibition curated by Iman Tajik and Bella Hoogeveen.
