The University of Ireland and the Hunt Museum take the NEW WORLD IMAGE exhibition, first opened at the Black Diamond in Copenhagen, to Ireland. Side by side with material from the 1949 Human Rights Exhibition, photos from a new photographic opportunity encapsulating the theme of BELONGING are displayed. 


The exhibition is an integral part of the International Summer School on Arts and Human Rights, bringing together arts and human rights practitioners and others interested in the topics in a series of workshops on the topics of literature and human rights, the visual arts and human rights, and music and human rights. The Summer School is co-directed by Professor Michael O’Flaherty, Director of the Irish Centre for Human Rights and Dr Dominique Bouchard, Curator at the Hunt Museum. The event will provide a platform for sharing ideas and identifying synergies between the two disciplines of art and human rights, both of which are strongly aligned with issues such as social justice, cultural expression and cultural freedom. The opening speaker will be United Nations’ leading expert on human rights and culture, Farida Shaheed, the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Cultural Rights.
