We launched our 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 was the ideal opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to developing a centre of human rights related activity in Perth, 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.

On 10 December, we launched our 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!
