Exhibitions

What is it ?

The 30th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is a great opportunity to organise exhibitions about children, on the one hand, and about their achievements and work, on the other.

Two projects from the 2019 anniversary programme serve as jumping-off points for these exhibitions:

  • the launch of the first Geneva Prize for children’s rights;

Three exhibitions are open to the public in the city of Geneva :

  1. Children and Human Rights Defenders: this exhibition on Quai Wilson will present, in October 2019, a series of photo portraits of children and groups of children particularly committed to defending human rights;
  2. and 3. State of Play with Children’s Rights – Reporting by Children from Geneva and Elsewhere: in September 2019, this exhibition will present in two different places – the pedestrianised area of Rue du Mont-Blanc and Quai du Rhône – a selection of photo, video, radio and written reports produced by children of Geneva and elsewhere, as part of the Child Reporters project.

What are its objectives ?

  • To raise public awareness by bringing the subject of children’s rights and the accompanying reflection to the heart of the city and the public sphere

  • To promote children’s involvement in their own rights

  • To highlight children’s creativity and their work on reflecting about and communicating their rights

How can I take part ?

The Association “30 Years of Children’s Rights” and its partners will consider what to select for the exhibition.

The two other exhibitions will offer the public a selection of reports provided by children as part of the Child Reporters project and nominated by a panel of experts.

Which partners are involved ?

The three exhibitions have developed from work between the various partners striving to protect and promote children’s rights in Geneva, such as (but not exclusively) Terre des Hommes Suisse, Children of the Worlde and Child Rights Connect.

What visibility is there ?

For the Children and Human Rights Defenders exhibition, we will make an appointment with you on Quai Wilson in October 2019.

For the State of Play with Children’s Rights – Reporting by Children from Geneva and Elsewhere exhibitions, we will make an appointment with you on the pedestrianised area of Rue du Mont-Blanc or on Quai du Rhône in September 2019.
