Art and Human Rights Talk

24 June, 7.30pm | London
Sadler's Wells

Sadler’s Wells hosts a panel debate exploring the relationship between art and human rights.

Artists and human rights campaigners reflect on the role of art in addressing our shared humanity, providing insight from their own experiences, work and expertise. Why, and how, does art bear witness, shine a light on or celebrate our human rights? And what is the value and impact of this, in society and in our everyday lives?

Speakers include Jasmin Vardimon, choreographer and artistic director of Jasmin Vardimon Company, and author and prominent human rights barrister Philippe Sands QC, with more to be announced soon. The discussion is chaired by Kate Arthurs, Director, Arts at the British Council.
