Human Rights Day - Balloons of solidarity

Human Rights Day - Balloons of solidarity
Dates and times
10th Dec 2023
12:00PM - 4:00PM
All ages

Join us on Sunday, 10th December 2023 from 12:00 PM for an event marking the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

This FREE drop-in event aims to spread awareness and solidarity with the theme of this year’s Human Rights Day of ‘Dignity, Freedom and Justice for All.’

Inspired by Banksy's CUT + RUN, which has been on show at GoMA this summer, we'll draw and write on paper balloons to express our solidarity to all people currently affected by conflict.

Immerse yourself in a vibrant atmosphere filled with colorful balloons symbolising unity and support for human rights. As we all fill the walls of the GoMA Studio with these powerful symbols, let us come together to acknowledge the importance of respecting and protecting the rights of every individual.

Whether you are a human rights advocate, an activist, or simply someone who believes in the fundamental values of humanity, this event is an opportunity to amplify your voice and contribute to a more inclusive society.

Mark your calendars, invite your friends and family, and be part of this extraordinary celebration of Human Rights Day. Together, let's raise awareness, inspire change, and build a world where every person's rights are respected and upheld.
