Our colleagues at FIHRM-LA have launched their first major project and they are inviting museums across Latin America to revisit the Universal Declaration a of Human Rights and take a closer look at how human rights are promoted around them.
The basis of the project is a photo contest that focuses on Article 25 of the declaration. The most significant 30 images will be exhibited in museums across Latin America from April 2019, including:
- Museo Internacional para la Democracia – Rosario, Argentina
- Instituto Internacional de Aprendizaje para la Reconciliación Social (IIARS) – Guatemala City, Guatemala
- Museo Nacional de Colombia – Bogota, Colombia
- Memorial de la Resistencia Dominicana – Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
- Museo Legislativo – Mexico City, Mexico
- Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos – Santiago, Chile
- Lugar de la Memoria, la Tolerancia y la Inclusión Social (LUM) – Lima, Peru
Submissions will be accepted up to March 31st.
