Cinema, Human Rights and Advocacy Summer School - 16th Edition
Concepts like universal freedom, protection, dignity, autonomy and equity rose to the top. These ideas will form the base upon which participants in our summer school will learn to use storytelling to advance children’s rights.
Participants are gathering from around the globe in our premises to begin the in-person programming offered through a partnership between Picture People and the Global Campus of Human Rights. They are engaging in workshops on visual stories for change, view and discuss several films, meet with filmmakers, attend a theater performance and present their own project ideas.
The school is aimed at young professionals wishing to broaden their understanding on the connections between human rights, films, digital media and video advocacy, and learn how to use film as a tool for social change. Our programming is designed to provide a safe, culturally rich and collaborative environment where diversity and inclusivity are embraced, original and critical thinking is encouraged, skills are honed, creativity is unleashed and networking with experts from the human rights arena and professionals from the film industry at the Venice international Film Festival is supported. Through this work, we are preparing and inspiring a new generation of visual changemakers dedicated to delivering social change to children and young people. We hope you’ll follow along on their journey.
