Elite Art Club UNESCO is a Romanian cultural NGO based in Bucharest. Its aim is to promote the UNESCO fundamental principles by organizing complex cultural projects which meet the needs of national civil society and help develop Romania both culturally and educationally. Internationally, Elite Art Club UNESCO aims to promote global intellectual cooperation and universal cultural values.
The organization began its activity in 2003 and in 2010 it became the sole Romanian representative of the Jeunesses Musicales International global network – the biggest non-governmental organization in the world, dedicated to promoting young musicians. All the projects of the organization are aimed at supporting and developing the careers of young artists, the main target being Romanian artists and the international promotion of their works. Elite Art Club UNESCO has contributed at internationally promoting Romanian artistic productions which have become national and international cultural landmarks.
The organization operates mainly in the classical music and visual arts sector. Several of its projects have become yearly events such as the Classics for Pleasure Festival and the International Conducting Competition Jeunesses Musicales Bucharest – both of which have been running for nearly a decade. In 2008, following the constant development of its visual arts projects, the organization opened Elite Art Gallery, a vibrant art gallery which has become a cultural hub.
