INSPIRING HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVISM – Art Exhibition

November 4 @ 7:00 pm - November 9 @ 10:00 pm

Every day, around the world, inspiring individuals risk their lives to fight for and defend the human rights that many of us take for granted. Their commitment to the causes they defend, despite the risks they face, is deeply inspiring.

The purpose of this art competition is to celebrate inspirational human rights activism by inviting you to think about what or who inspires you to value and support human rights activism.

What does human rights activism mean to you and why should we celebrate it? Has a particular human rights defender inspired you? What about a moment you witnessed, experienced or read about that made you value human rights and those who defend them? Which human rights causes are particularly close to your heart that you want to inspire others to think about?

This competition is open to everybody; you don’t need to be an activist or artist to take part. Vouchers for artist materials will be awarded to first and second place winners in adults and under-16s categories.

All entries will be exhibited at JB Morrell Library from Monday 4th November to Saturday 9th November.

There will be a special launch event on the 4th November, time to be confirmed.

Please contact Tallulah Lines with any questions or queries: tallulah.lines@york.ac.uk
