Description
RIGHTS ON SHOW provides a forum for artists to exhibit work with a human rights focus, promoting human rights dialogue within the arts sector and the wider community.
Art has an important function in our society as a vehicle for social change and expression. Art allows social ideas to be challenged and highlights the right to freedom of expression the world over. Become a part of this discussion by participating in RIGHTS ON SHOW 2014.
Each year we receive many varied entries from Northern Territory artists. RIGHTS ON SHOW is open to artists of all ages and all abilities.
