WALL OF HOPE

We invited the public to contribute their human rights stories, inspirations and ideas for how people could make a difference. These messages were then transformed into a mural where people could find hope.

THIS IS US

Filmmakers and schools teamed together to create a short film that describes what makes their school community special. Our Speak Truth To Power schools showed how they engage with their local community to empower young people to be active citizens within it.

HUMAN RIGHTS START IN THE COMMUNITY

Speak Truth To Power school, Fred Longworth, created an evening on human rights inspired Art, Drama and Music for their local community.
