This exhibition is part of the first edition of the Summer School on The Arts and Human Rights (AHR) taking place from June 20 to 24, 2016. The goal of this course is to explore issues around the Art as a manifestation of human rights and as an instrument for the promotion of human rights. The course is open to students (for credit or not) as well as academics, government employees, NGO and IO staff, indigenous and community representatives, artists, activists and cultural workers. Each year, the summer school will focus in a particular theme. For the first edition, the theme is Indigenous Arts and Culture.
