Human Rights Day Pop-up Festival

The Museum of Freedom and Tolerance are launching In Visible Ink project with a series of pop-up activations to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights on 10 December 2018.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a milestone document in the history of human rights, proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.

This anniversary is the ideal opportunity for our Museum to demonstrate its commitment to developing a centre of human rights related activity in Perth.  It provides opportunities to develop partnerships and to activate community wide conversations about how we celebrate, why we commemorate and when to critique our basic human rights and those of others in our community.

YAGAN SQUARE

Join them in Yagan Square on Sunday 9 December at 12 noon for our Human Rights Day family celebrations. They will have dance performances from indigenous and multicultural youth, a digital photography exhibition, a pop up play space designed around the right of children to play safely and freely in the heart of our community and a youth ‘zine’ making workshop based around exploring what human rights mean to you and how we can defend them.

On 10 December, join them as they launch their very own version of the Declaration of Human Rights, designed and developed in partnership with the Community Arts Network and the Edmund Rice Centre. Human rights are for everyone, and we want you to have your own pocket guide!

This and many more activities are organised by the Museum of Freedom and Tolerance, so come along to Perth city to celebrate 70th anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights. Please visit the website for more information.
