Following the immense success of the European Arts Forum held in Brussels last June, WYA Europe is delighted to announce its third edition. The European Arts Forum is a three-day long gathering that features a wide range of events, including an exhibition of the selected artworks, lectures by expert speakers, small group discussions, musical performances, presentations led by the participating young artists, an award ceremony, as well as meeting with decision-makers on the European level.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Unity in Diversity: Connecting Europe through Culture’ and will take place in Brussels from the 24th to the 26th of June, 2017. The European Arts Forum will simultaneously exhibit the diverse work of young artists from across Europe and equip the youth with the tools necessary to fully accept, support and promote diversity through the intercultural and inter-religious dialogue, common European values of human dignity, freedom, tolerance and respect of human rights. It will also provide abilities to better respond to the contemporary realities of youth in changing Europe. Artwork selected for exhibition at the event ranges from sculpture, to painting, to jewelry making, to coffee bean mosaics.
