Recap opening expositie ‘Voices of Change: Inspiring Action for Justice and Peace’
On April 25, the opening took place of the exhibition Voices of Change: Inspiring Action for Justice and Peace in the atrium of The Hague University of Applied Sciences. This inspiring exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Art Collection of The Hague University of Applied Sciences and students of the minor Peacebuilding, Justice, and Human Rights.
The exhibition consists of posters and DigiTales, in which current human rights issues are addressed. The activist posters were designed during workshops on art, graphic design, and activism, led by artist Marcha van den Hurk, graphic designer Welmer Keesmaat, and curator of the art collection Johan Nieuwenhuize. The posters cover topics from climate change to human rights violations, and are meant to be a call to action and inspire us towards positive change in the world.
The DigiTales are short films in which students talk about current human rights issues that are important to them. The topics range from social justice to sustainability. The aim of the exhibition is to create awareness and encourage visitors to engage in discussions about the society we live in.
The opening of the exhibition was a fun and informative morning. The photos of the exhibition can be seen next to this message. The exhibition can be visited from April 25 to May 1 in the atrium of The Hague University of Applied Sciences.
