Launch Symposium on the Arts and Human Rights

The Human Rights Research and Education Centre, University of Ottawa, requests your presence at a cultural evening to launch the Symposium on the Arts and Human Rights.

The event will begin at 6 p.m. with a keynote address by Dr. Yvonne Donders (University of Amsterdam) followed by a response from Dr. Allan Ryan (Carleton University).
An Aboriginal dinner will be served accompanied by cultural performances.

Friday, June 26, 2015
Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health
299 Montreal Road, Ottawa

This event is by invitation only.


The Symposium will address the broad topic of “The Arts and Human Rights” and will comprise participants on the basis of invitations issued by the HRREC.  It will provide the opportunity for a range of invited scholars and practitioners to exchange initial reflections and perspectives and identify key elements of the relationship between the Arts and Human Rights, notably in terms of an analytical framework, parameters, language, and a possible typology. The exchange will guide subsequent undertakings within the Arts and Human Rights Program at the Centre and will inform issues and questions for a prospective research and education agenda.
