ARTS + ACTIVISM [an exhibition]

20 January - 5 February 2018

King's Manor ~ York Explore ~ Pica Studios

Many of us are content to exist in the world as it is , but some people are inspired to change it or urgently need to.  How does it actually feel to navigate the risks of fighting for justice, equality and liberty in today's world? and how can we imagine new ways of doing this?

Drawing from the research of the University of York's Centre for Applied Human Rights, this multi media exhibition of work from international and UK based artists immerses its audience in the experience of defending human rights.
