2019 is the 30th Anniversary of the United Nations Convention on Children’s Rights (UNCRC, 1989). The Faculty of Education Early Childhood team and students, in collaboration with the Open Eye Gallery, Granby Children’s Centre, and Granby Winter Garden, will celebrate children’s rights with young children and their families through arts-based activities and exhibitions.
On Wednesday 6th November the event will include artistic and creative workshops, involving music, drawing, storytelling, photography, and cyanotypes. The artefacts created will be exhibited at the Open Eye Gallery on Saturday 9th November, giving us the opportunity to mark the occasion in an art-based way. The event is part of the Festival of Social Science, funded by the ESRC.
