UN Youth for Impact - Mural

Location: The Hague
Second half 2021 (t.b.v)
Part of: See You in The Hague

Our program See You in The Hague examines the Peace and Justice identity of the city of The Hague from the perspective of art. The impact of the work at international organizations extends far beyond what we imagine it to be. It is interesting to see how artists are tackling this subject from a variety of perspectives. They come together in the conviction that art contributes to an understanding of social processes and that the involvement of the wider public is an imperative necessity.

In 2021, Stroom is partnering with local youth organization UN Youth for Impact to promote the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals require input from young people from around the world. A large mural by the artist duo Karski & Beyond will depict what themes the youth of The Hague would like to see on the UN agenda. Through a social media campaign and an educational program for high school students we will try to find out. Stroom shares its expertise and network to help UNYI realize this project.
