Exhibits can be displayed in person at UN Headquarters in New York, or virtually on the UN exhibits website.
At Headquarters, there are three galleries available for exhibits open to the public, ranging in size from 110 linear feet (34 m) to 1400 square feet (130 m2). A 360-degree view of the gallery space can be seen in this video.
Anyone can submit an exhibit proposal. However, proposals submitted by non-UN entities must be accompanied by a letter from a UN entity (department/office; special political or peacekeeping mission; regional commission or resident coordinator; fund, programme or specialized agency; other entity of the UN system), or a Permanent or Observer Mission formally endorsing the exhibit and its content. All exhibits, regardless of the supporting entity, must be reviewed by the relevant UN office specialized in the topic.
There is no rental fee to use the gallery space. Exhibitors are responsible for all related costs, including production, installation, promotion, and an opening event/reception (optional). Costs vary depending on the scope of the exhibit and therefore can only be estimated after a complete proposal has been submitted and approved.
