GENEVA, June 29 (Xinhua) -- The International Olymp'Arts Committee (IOAC) announced on Wednesday that it will launch the first Olympic Arts competition in Geneva, Switzerland, in July 2023, hoping to provide an opportunity for talented artists worldwide to spread their message and become recognized global artists.
