About ELITE ART Club UNESCO
Elite Art Club UNESCO aims at promoting fundamental UNESCO principles by organizing complex cultural projects which represent relevant answers to the exigencies of the national civil society and contribute to the cultural and educational development of Romania. At an international level, Elite Art Club UNESCO’s efforts are concentrated in promoting international intellectual cooperation and disseminating universal cultural values while highlighting the importance of Romanian artists in the development of the European cultural patrimony.
Elite Art Club UNESCO is a non-governmental, nonprofit organization which begun its activity in 2003 and in 2010 became the sole representative in Romania of the Jeunesses Musicales International global network – the most extensive nongovernmental organization in the world, dedicated to promoting young musicians. All the projects of the association are aimed at sustaining and developing the professional career of young artists and some of its priorities are the supporting of Romanian artists and the international promotion of their works. The decision to give priority to young Romanian artists implies the fact that Elite Art Club UNESCO has contributed to the international promotion of several Romanian artistic productions which have become national and international cultural landmarks.
Classical music and visual arts are the defining courses for Elite Art Club UNESCO and the majority of the projects initiated in these areas have become annual events such as the Classics for Pleasure Festival and the International Conducting Competition Jeunesses Musicales Bucharest – both international concepts implemented by the association in Romania for nearly a decade. In 2008, following the constant evolution of its visual arts projects, the association created Elite Art Gallery. In addition to implementing a complex program aimed at promoting contemporary artists, the gallery carries out numerous visual arts projects which aim at developing civil society through art.
