Voices From Beyond The Dark
Our Arts in Human Rights Education programs offer educators the necessary tools to provide students with opportunities to take action around an issue of personal importance through a medium that they can most effectively and authentically express themselves in.
Through different mediums of art, students will develop projects that creatively express their personal relationship with human rights. By using art to find creative solutions to community and global issues, students will take transformative action that will allow them to see, understand, and engage with the world in a personal and meaningful way.
Our current arts programs include Arts in Human Rights Education trainings; the play “Speak Truth to Power: Voices From Beyond the Dark” and defender monologues; music and video contests; theatre, playwriting, and spoken-word sessions; and lessons that feature the stories of artists changing the world through different mediums.
“All great questions must be raised by great voices, and the greatest voice is the voice of the people - speaking out - in prose, or painting or poetry or music; speaking out - in homes and halls, streets and farms, courts and cafes - let that voice speak and the stillness you hear will be the gratitude of mankind.”
