INSPIRING HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVISM – Art Exhibition

November 4 @ 7:00 pm - November 9 @ 10:00 pm
J M Morrell Library, University of York, Heslington
York, YO10 5DD
+ Google Map

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

‘Climate Justice’ has become a buzzword in the climate movement. But what does it really mean? About this Event In this workshop we will be exploring why the climate movement must take into account how our economic system has created and perpetuated climate change. We will understand why those who are least responsible for climate change are suffering the gravest consequences. Finally, will look into how people are fighting back by demanding social and economic justice and how we can all stand together to fight for climate justice for everyone. Join Global Justice Now and activists from our London Youth Network Our Future Now for this interactive workshop at York University! FREE WORKSHOP. 30 PLACES MAX, FIRST COME FIRST SERVED.
