About the Forum

On June 29, 2022, the International Olymp’Arts Committee held the "the First International Contest of Olymp’Arts Global Conference" at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, the European headquarters of the United Nations, and announced that the First International Contest of Olymp’Arts will be held in Geneva, Switzerland in 2023. After the conference, the Mission of the Republic of Greece to the United Nations and the International Olymp’Arts Committee agreed to cooperate in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities to strengthen the dissemination of the spirit of Olymp’Arts. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Greece, the International Olymp’Arts Committee China Preparatory Office and the Greece Embassy in China will also launch related cultural and artistic cooperation, expressing mutual expectations for the revival of the “Art Olympiads” and the holding of the Olymp’Arts 2023, hoping to let more people know about Olymp’Arts and participate in the cause of "Art Olympiads Revival" through the online forum.
