'Human Rights' Exposition


The Coffee Virus

Tuesday Mar 19 17:00

Join the conversation on censorship in honour of the 30 cartoons curated by Cartoon Movement that illustrate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

A Lab will host on Tuesday March 19 an interactive discussion in honour of this exposition about how censorship plays a different role in the creative process of A Lab Members. How do you decide what you write about in case of an uncomfortable or sensitive topic? Have you ever had a conversation with your client about what really should be in a project, and what aspects you consciously leave out in a story? Join the conversation and let’s toast together on the inspiring Cartoon Movement exposition!

About the exposition:

Around the world, human rights are increasingly under pressures and space for civil society, journalists and cartoonists is shrinking. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was created in 1948, and it is as relevant now as it was then. The 30 human rights laid down in this document are an essential condition if we want to attain freedom, justice and peace for all, leaving no one behind. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and to acknowledge its importance, the United Nations Human Rights Office (OHCHR) and the government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands together with the Cartoon Movement launched a cartoon contest. Out of over 500 cartoons from all over the globe these 30 cartoons illustrate the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration.

The cartoons in this exhibition make you think. They bring human rights to live.
