I know my rights! is the first art exhibition on children’ rights, with art works made by children.
Children have different life stories,live in different parts of the world: however all children decide to participate in this project to tell adults fundamental truth.
I HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE A CHILD.
They decided to translate their rights through art, imagination, symbolic language and emotional experience.
On the occasion of November 20, 2015, the World Day of the Rights of the Child, we will open our first virtual exhibition with the aim to disseminate children’ rights all over the world.
Besides to their rights, or beside the absence of their rights, there is their thinking. Who they are and where they are going to.
Art, in its various forms of expression, is the best universal language. Art language is capable of incorporating imagination, thought and experience.
The emotional sphere of the young artist leaves its trail, the visitor captures the resonance and begins to vibrate following the same emotion. This is what happened. We believe that it si a beautiful language without any doubt. Some of the pages of this website are written for adults. Other pages are instead written for the young artists, the key players.
Children have been involved by adults. Adults explained to children their rights, trying to refrain from any judgments whatsoever.
What is a right, where it is written, who wrote it and who promised to respect it.
From this point onwards, children are guaranteed complete freedom of expression.
The project is open to children and adolescents up to the age of 18 years.
On this page we explain you how to participate.
