Who We Are

The Rights Studio is the brainchild of Miriam Sugranyes and Veronica Yates at CRIN, the Child Rights International Network – CRIN.

The Rights Studio was officially founded in September 2020 in Berlin, Germany. However its work and ideas have been around for some years, under the auspices of CRIN and partners.

While CRIN and The Rights Studio are working in close collaboration, the need for the new entity was based on the desire to create an organisation that is solely focused on experimenting with creative ideas, within a different framework, involving different people and groups, and operating as a social enterprise. CRIN continues to operate as the think tank, the brain of our collective struggles, while The Rights Studio is the playground where everyone is invited to play.

Who we work with

We are collaborating with people who share our values, whether they are artists, writers, scientists, organisations, companies, and individuals, in order to provoke new conversations around human rights. Get in touch if you have ideas for collaborating with us.

See upcoming Digital Festival for new collaborations.

The list is growing but below are some of our collaborations. See also Moving Clouds for exhibitions and workshops.

  • We are proud pirates and members of the Be More Pirate movement which grew out the book which inspired us to write the CRIN Code. “Being more pirate is a shift in your mindset; a willingness to think differently, to challenge and be challenged, and to stop asking for permission to do what you know is right.”
  • Little Inventors, an education company that gives children across the world the opportunity to develop and showcase their creativity and problem-solving skills, build their confidence, curiosity and resilience to become caring citizens of our planet. Watch this space for our upcoming collaboration on using children’s imagination to solve the environmental crisis!
