The Arts and Human Rights Research Workshop

Posted on 10 July 2017

Expressions of interest sought from artists, activists and researchers.

The Human Rights Defender Hub (HRD Hub) at the Centre for Applied Human Rights (CAHR), University of York, will host a workshop on the arts and human rights research on 25-26 January 2018.

We are interested in receiving expressions of interest from artists, activists and/or researchers to:

  • Present research or exhibit art work which has been produced by collaborations integrating the arts into one or more of the phases of research (these expressions of interest can address human rights broadly defined, including conflict, development, etc.).

  • Present new pilot research proposals involving artists, activists and researchers which relate to risk and security for HRDs, or new patterns of human rights activism.

Small grants are available to support attendance at the workshop for presenters, exhibitions / performances which will take place during the workshop, and potentially to support new pilot research projects.
