HRREC is pleased to invite you to ‘play’ on the art performance called Jigsaw Day. This special event is part of THE UNIVERSAL GAME - One Flag to Connect Us All, an outreach art project from the Centre created and produced by 233, Visiting Artist from the University of Seville. This project falls within the Centre’s Arts and Human Rights Program.
Jigsaw Day entails making an oversized puzzle and having fun meeting new people from all around the world. The shapes used come from decomposing the flags from uOttawa student nationalities mixed with universal symbols. The symbols used in the game are:
- Flame for Human Rights
- Balance for Justice
- Heart for Love
- Dove for Peace
- Light Bulb for Ideas & Creativity
- Handshake for Unit & Cooperation
- Tree for Mother Nature & Life
- United Nations Flag for the World
The visual result of the jigsaw is going to be photographed and printed onto a large-scale vinyl banner as the final artwork of the outreach project.
