Human Rights Day Panel: Arts for Change
Joining HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL on International Human Rights Day, as they host a discussion about using the arts as a tool to share human rights stories, mentor youth, and spark change, especially during COVID-19.
This panel will feature some of Canada’s leading curators, artists, performers, and youth mentors including Ashley McKenzie-Barnes, Taha Muharuma, Adrijan Assoufi, and Aquil Imran Virani. The panel will be moderated by Britta Badour.
Prior to the panel, we’ll send you a link to the World Premiere of Adrijan Assoufi’s Cultures of Resilience – Quebec, a short-film that sheds light on Islamophobia in Quebec City.
This event is presented in partnership with TakingITGlobal, a charity empowering youth to understand and act on local and global challenges. Cultures of Resilience – Quebec is born from TakingITGlobal’s #RisingYouth initiative. The film captures the stories of three young Muslim Quebecers who have each successfully completed a #RisingYouth community service grant project to promote community solidarity.
