The first Galway International Summer School on the Arts and Human Rights, organised by the Irish Centre for Human Rights and the Hunt Museum, will take place from 9 to 11 July 2015 in the National University of Ireland, Galway.
The Summer School offers the opportunity to explore the intersection between the arts and human rights, by bringing together arts practitioners with human rights scholars and activists. Events will take the form of panel discussions, exhibitions and performances.
The global theme for 2015 will be “Belonging”. The Summer School will consist of keynote addresses, plenary discussions and themed discussions on three parallel tracks: literature and human rights; the visual arts and human rights; music and human rights. The opening speaker will be the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Cultural Rights, Farida Shaheed.
