Urban Art Festival Photo exhibition "Journeys through our Fragile Heritage"


Arts

Prepared jointly by Wikimedia and UNESCO – and realized in Lugano thanks to the collaboration with the UNESCO Chair at USI – this exhibition highlights the richness, diversity and fragility of our common cultural heritage.

An itinerant exhibit made of 14 “dibond” boards representing views of our planet, using the freely licensed open access images that are available. The exhibition was organized within the framework of the #Unite4Heritage campaign launched by UNESCO in 2015, that today has become a global movement, with the goal of celebrating the cultural heritage, denouncing its intentional destruction by extremist groups and promoting people's awareness of the responsibility to safeguard it. The installation will first be displayed on the USI campus and will then be freely accessible to the public on the fences of the Parco Ciani.
