Gatherings and Collaborations

Festivals, exhibitions and workshops to support creative communities to develop and be inspired.

Climate Champions

Children must take part in climate and environmental decisions – they care, have rights and their ideas, passion and imaginations can inspire adults to urgently act to save our planet from irreversible destruction.

Launched in August 2021, this collaborative project with Little Inventors and CRIN aims to show that children’s input should be actively sought and listened to on matters that affect their present lives and their future, particularly on the climate and other environmental issues.

The Rights Studio Festival

In 2020, we hosted our first digital festival. It consisted of a month-long programme of streamed virtual events and artistic content to play with, break with and reshape how we engage with the rights of under-18s.

Tate Exchange

In 2019 and 2020, we participated in the annual week-long Tate Exchange event at the Tate Modern in collaboration with the Digital Maker Collective alongside multiple other partners. It brought together tech activists, experts, students, university staff, creatives and the public to explore ideas for making society a better, fairer place.

Venice Biennale 2019 as part of the ARTIVISM pavilion

In collaboration with the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation. The event explored the creative responses of artists and artistically minded activists to the most precarious of situations: large-scale identity-based violence and mass atrocities.  

More than merely showing the way others have used the arts to foment positive change, Artivism also provided concrete steps for visitors themselves to take action, highlighting their own power to play a role in mass atrocity prevention at home and around the world.

Toxics; Art Exhibition and Talks

To highlight the impact of toxic exposure on children, we exhibited artwork on the issue at The Three Stags in London in November 2018, an event which featured a discussion with the UN’s top expert on human rights and toxics, Baskut Tuncak. Using facts as the inspiration to get us to confront the fundamentals of toxics, the artworks are a wake-up call about the hazards, our vulnerabilities, and what needs to change.

Murals

As part of our effort to reach different audiences with our ideas, research, and artwork, we have taken part in a number of mural projects in public spaces in London, Palestine and Washington DC. These were done with the intention of collaborating with other artists, activists and children, but also to bring our work to street level in an effort to democratise human rights as a responsibility that everyone shares.
