See You See Me

Exhibition by over 1000 young people illustrating their rights in response to Viewpoints: Children’s Rights in Imaginary Spaces.

This Spring, the Glucksman invited schools, university students and community groups to take part in a creative project that explored children’s rights. The See You, See Me project gave young people of the region the opportunity to develop a greater awareness of rights and to interpret rights based themes through their own original artworks.

The UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989, a human rights treaty which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. 30 years on we invited young people to reflect on the convention and to interpret rights for our contemporary world. In facilitated workshops, over 1000 participants took inspiration from the exhibition Viewpoints: Children’s Rights in Imaginary Spaces and learnt new art making techniques as they worked collaboratively to develop creative responses.

As we cannot present the artworks in the gallery, we will be posting some images of the works online.
