Beijing 2022; Olympic Agora Beijing 2022


“Launched for the first time during the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, the Olympic Agora is a unique cultural platform created by the Olympic Foundation for Culture and Heritage (OFCH) to promote Olympic culture and values among global audiences. Inspired by the Ancient Greek tradition of a social hub, the Agora is a space for cross-cultural dialogue and discovery at the intersection of sport, art, culture and education.

To mark the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 the OFCH brings special Olympic cultural content online, for audiences across the globe. At the heart of the programme are seven Olympian Artists-in- Residence who were selected to create and present new, original artworks inspired by the Olympic values and the magic of winter sports.”
