MU and Foundation We Are host a Design and Human Rights Forum on 19 April. Foundation We Are asked itself: how does design contribute to human rights issues? The conclusion was that there is much room left for improvement. The goal of the design and human rights forum is to brainstorm about ways in which design can support human rights defenders in their practice.
The design initiative We Are, in collaboration with Justice and Peace Netherlands, and MU, wants to open up a dialogue between government, human rights defenders and creatives, in order to explore ways in which design can support human rights defenders in their practice.
On 19 April, you can expect presentations by designers of We Are about their project We Are Human Rights, and by Justice & Peace about their initiative Shelter City. Next to this, there will be workshops with international human rights defenders. Our goal is to jump start an engaging conversation.
When 19 April from 19:30 till 22:00
Tickets €5,- . Tickets are for sale online through eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.nl/e/tickets-we-are-human-rights-45021318977
