CAHR is currently implementing a research project entitled ‘Navigating Risk, Managing Security, and Receiving Support’, which examines the experiences of human rights defenders at risk in Colombia, Mexico, Egypt, Kenya and Indonesia. We have conducted interviews, focus groups and surveys with around 400 human rights defenders at risk.
The artist brief relates to producing creative responses and interpretations of research outputs from this study. We aim to commission artists working in a range of art forms including visual arts, music and sound, film, dance, creative writing, photography and other forms.
Applications are sought from artists originally from or living in the five countries included in the research. We also seek to commission a number of artists who have had experience of activism or human rights practice.
For more information on the commission including timescales and the application process please read the Artist Brief (PDF , 116kb).
