When the Arts Champion Human Rights – Thomas Kilpper from Culture Action Europe on Vimeo.

What is the arts’ impact on the defence of human rights and the protection of the most vulnerable?
How does this transform the role of the artist and the spaces dedicated to art?

What is the implication of funding a street-art museum in an abandoned factory turned squat and inhabited by over 200 Roma people in the suburbs of Rome?

What are the motivation and consequences of exposing the contradictions of helpers-visitors in refugee camps?

On Lampedusa’s shores, a frontline where hope and despair meet life and death, can an art project help understand immigration phenomena and their human dimensions?

The conversations will be moderated by Anne Boukris, Danish Centre for Arts & Interculture.

This event is free.
The conversations will be held in English.

Following the tragic events in Paris, increased security measures have been put into place. All people wishing to enter the BOZAR building, where are conversations will take place, must register for this event beforehand via  contact@cultureactioneurope.org, stating their full name, nationality and passport/ID number.
