Exploring the Use of the Arts to Promote Human Rights in Iran

This program sponsored by Amnesty International will highlight the use of the arts to promote awareness and inspire creative activism on behalf of human rights in Iran. The program involves presenting examples of creative use of different media—film, photography, graphic novels, and music– to engage larger and more diverse audiences and inspire them to imagine and carry out new forms of human rights activism and features the graphic novel Zahra’s Paradise, the photo exhibit “Interrupted Lives” and the short film ”Education Under Fire.” (event to be held twice)
