The UNESCO Courier

Of all the journals published by the United Nations and its specialised institutions, the UNESCO Courier has always occupied first place for the number of its readers and the range of its audience, said the American journalist Sandy Koffler, the Courier’s founder and first editor-in-chief, in 1988. The magazine has changed a great deal over the years, both in content and in form. But it pursues its original mission: promote UNESCO’s ideals, maintain a platform for the dialogue between cultures and provide a forum for international debate. Available online since March 2006, the UNESCO Courier serves readers around the world in the six official languages of the Organization (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish), and also in Esperanto, Korean and Portuguese. A limited number of issues are also produced in print.

When art takes over the street

Long considered marginal, street art today represents a major trend that democratizes access to art and infuses urban spaces with a new social and economic dynamic. In the heart of the island of Djerba, Tunisia, some 100 artists have illuminated the small town of Erriadh – now known as Djerbahood – with about 250 murals. Mehdi Ben Cheikh, a French-Tunisian gallery owner who initiated this promising project, tells us how the idea continues to grow.
