Arts & human rights are closely related and need each other. Art can only flourish in an atmosphere of freedom from fear, violence and repression. We attended the Opening of #BiennaleArte2019 and we found many artworks linked to nowadays challenges to human rights and climate change.

Lorent Saleh Interview
“Luckily, we received good gestures of support from the European Union and the European Parliament and, although they might seem little ones, they are enough. I am very grateful, particularly to the European Union and the Spanish government, because they were there for me and they took me out of that box I was in, rescuing me from the claws of tyranny in my country. Now, that bridge that I crossed, I do not want to destroy it. I want to make it bigger so that many more can count on this bridge to freedom. And that bridge is the international community.”, Lorent Saleh, 2017 Sakharov Prize Laureate, interviewed by the Global Campus of Human Rights during the Opening of the Venice School of Human Rights - 6 April 2019.
