TEAS Events

TEAS hosts and sponsors a series of events throughout the year. Our events centre on TEAS’ main focus areas – culture, business and public affairs – and are designed to promote Azerbaijan on the world-stage.

Our thriving events calendar includes the annual TEAS Business Forum, the TEAS Lecture Series, classical music and mugham concerts, art and photo exhibitions, and public affairs-related events, in addition to a number of ad-hoc events hosted throughout the year.

TEAS events provide a platform for TEAS members and members of the public with an interest in Azerbaijan to meet and learn about the country and its culture.

Details of our previous events can be found in the Past Events section.

If you are interested in attending any of our events, or the various sponsorship opportunities that exist, please contact our events team:

23–28 February

11.00–18.30hrs

The Art Thema Gallery, 51 Rue de la Madeleine, 1000 Brussels

(Private view on 22 February: email: jonathan.lukas@teas.eu for details)

This exhibition commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Khojaly Massacre, which took place on 26 February, claiming the lives of 613 Azerbaijani civilians. This was the worst single atrocity of the unresolved Armenian–Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Taken by leading photographer Philipp Rathmer, the exhibition comprises portraits of some of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) who are the ongoing victims of the Armenian occupation. Photographed against a black backdrop, these stark portraits tell an emotional story.

On 26 February 1992, a total of 613 innocent men, women and children were massacred in the small town of Khojaly. The 2017 Khojaly Peace Prize is the focal point of our 25th anniversary of Khojaly commemorations and presents a high-profile opportunity to highlight the plight of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs), not just in Azerbaijan, but throughout the world.

This year over 70 artists and art students from across the UK have submitted entries in the hope of winning the Khojaly Peace Prize for Art and, for the first time, there will be a Khojaly Peace Prize for Literature and a Khojaly Peace Prize for Poetry. The shortlisted entries will be displayed at the awards ceremony in Parliament and the winning artists announced by our esteemed panel of judges. It will be a poignant occasion, bringing together Parliamentarians, young British artists and other VIP members of the arts community.
