Positive City

Conceptual Art Exhibition: An HIV/AIDS awareness-raising approach

UNICEF Iran supported Positive City held in Tehran’s Laleh Park in December 2007.

This conceptual art exhibition had all the various elements of a real city, including schools, a coffee shop and even an “Altar of love”. In each of these installations, one of the aspects of HIV/AIDS will be put on display, together with suggestions for ways how to address the problem. It formed part of the global campaign on HIV/AIDS “Take the Lead!” hold in the Crisis Management Hall in the Laleh Park and will run from 2 to 8 December 2007. Linking art with public advocacy, the project aims to further increase awareness for HIV/AIDS prevention and to foster a discussion about the stigma and discrimination faced by people living with the virus.

In partnership with:  Tehran municipality, Iran’s Centre for Disease Control, UNAIDS and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
