October 24th is United Nations Day, and this year we’re marking 75 years of the United Nations (UN75). To commemorate this anniversary, the United Nations Secretary-General asked the world, “What are your hopes for the future?” Over one million people from every country spoke up, expressing their thoughts and ideas for the future we want.

One of the ways people answer this question is by making art. That’s why we’ve partnered with Google Arts and Culture to bring online a collection of over 500 artworks created in response to this prompt. We’re inviting everyone to learn more about how contemporary artists are answering today’s challenges and helping us imagine a better future. Exhibits include The Future is Unwritten, with inspiring contributions from nine international artists, as well as the Agora photo exhibit, which features submissions from members of the public exploring #TheWorldWeWant.

You too can join this conversation by creating your own Street Galleries, a new online tool allowing you to “project” selected artworks in the streets of cities around the world and share the images with your friends to spark a conversation.

Don’t know where to start? Find inspiration in the Street Galleries created by former Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth Jayathma Wickramanayake.


Discover the work of nine global artists who use their creativity to inspire a better, more sustainable world for all in The Future Is Unwritten.
