Sexual Violence in Conflict: Youth speak out through art

Aisha John-Mark with agency report


As the world Mark’s the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict on June 19, the United nations set up an art exhibition through the perspective of young, emerging artists from diverse backgrounds.

This exhibition was conceived by Special Representative Patten, after seeing the work of students at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts, who decided to address the issue of sexual violence through their artwork.

The students’ works on display here were chosen through a selection committee chaired by Special Representative Patten, on the basis of both their artistic merits and ability to address this complex topic through visual art with a raw emotional impact.
