UN Headquarters, New York

March 20, 2003


 “Dialogue of culture” was the theme of the exhibition of paintings, sculptures, pictures and tapestry opening at United Nations Headquarters in New York on 20 March to celebrate the International Day of La Francophonie. 

The exhibition, which was co-sponsored by the United Nations Department of Public Information, sought to convey the message that “peace implies the respect of differences and calls for an increasingly deeper rooting of a culture of tolerance in the hearts and minds”. Kiril Jelizakov was the only Bulgarian participant among the 29 artists from 21 member countries of the International Organization of la Francophonie.
