NATOarts is an international arts organization which seeks to promote global security and stability
through the exhibition of works of art. It is governed by a nineteen-member board of directors, with
representation from each of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization member states.
NATOarts was founded on April 4th, 1999, by unanimous motion of the North Atlantic Committee
(NAC 79:5C, Article three). As an organization operating under article twenty-three of the United
Nations 1971 Oslo accord, NATOarts is not affiliated with any sovereign state, but instead is governed
by a board of directors subject to international law.
