About the exhibition

Art is a universal language that does not recognise boundaries. It brings us closer together making us open our eyes to the beauty and diversity of the world through the inspiration it shares from different cultures.

The online exhibition “Beyond Differences” is an initiative of the UN Refugee Agency on the occasion of the World Refugee Day on 20 June. It exhibits the joint artworks of artists from Bulgaria, Syria, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan.

Nikolina and Kimia, Ivelina and Amjad Djad, Niya and Iptisam, Svetli and Bewar, Radina and Ali, Boyana and Silsila were involved in this creative interaction in order to produce joint artworks inspired by the diversity of various cultures.

We invite you to enjoy their works!


Visual artists, painters, musicians and singers from different countries took part in the exhibition. Their joint artworks share the message that differences in culture, language and background enrich us as human beings.
