Recitations from individual and collective memory of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
In partnership with LSE Arts, as part of the LSE Space for Thought Literary Festival
Saturday, 13 February 2010
On December 10 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Assembly called on Member States to publicise the text causing it to be displayed, disseminated, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions.
This event was one of a sequence, by artist Monica Ross, which continues the dialogue around the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, celebrating and honouring the human rights movement's founding principles. Monica was accompanied by a group of participants reciting the Declaration in English, French, Hindi, Spanish, Turkish and Welsh.
Technology permitting, we hope to post a video recording of the event online.
