Call for Submissions: Human Rights Defenders Poetry Challenge

November 30, 2021
CSO Event in Thailand

To honour the human rights defenders that have suffered, succeeded, fought and fallen, Protection International, and the Centre for Applied Human Rights of the University of York are launching a poetry challenge for all creatives, activists and advocates for human rights. This past year has been a difficult one, and during these times of mourning and collective struggle we would like to encourage the human rights community to take the time to express themselves. Acknowledging the power of emotion and its relationship with protection, as well as the healing capabilities of art, this is an opportunity to dig down and reflect on what we’ve gone through as a global, interconnected society—looking at where we are now, and where we would like to go from here.
