Tine Destrooper joins Advisory Board of ‘Can the Arts Save Human Rights?’ (CALS, York)

Tine Destrooper joined the Advisory Board of ‘Can the Arts Save Human Rights’ hosted at the University of York’s Center for Applied Human Rights (CAHR)

The project seeks to map new and emerging human rights languages or idioms at the intersections between major contemporary crises (attacks on global democracy and human rights, COVID-19, global poverty and inequality, and climate change).

It will draw on earlier work of ‘arctivism’, a collaboration between CAHR and the Open Society Foundations, which funds activists-artists collaborations across the world responding to COVID-19.

In doing so, it will also engage activists, artists, and academics intending to imagine alternatives to mainstream international development.
