AIUSA’s 2016 Annual General Meeting and Human Rights Conference provides students and educators with the chance to engage in networking opportunities, actions, inspiring plenaries, remarkable key notes, and hands on workshops. We are expecting over a thousand human rights activists from around the world who are inspired by this year’s theme to “Change Our World.” We stand shoulder to shoulder with activists in the United States and throughout the world to make a lasting human rights impact. We strive to embrace and reflect all identities that make up humanity in order to foster a world where justice, freedom, and dignity are recognized as central to the inalienable rights of all human beings.
Art for Amnesty is a global community of artists of all disciplines and nationalities who share Amnesty International’s vision of a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. Artists have a unique power to bring people together and to promote change. More than ever we need creative ways to acknowledge our human stories, to tell the world the truth.
At this year’s human rights conference, Art for Amnesty will host an interactive gallery space, and a special plenary screening and conversation around the short film, “Canvases of Courage.” We invite you to join us in Miami – even small actions, brought together, have the power to generate change. Special guest artists include: Bayunga, BMike, Douglas Miles, Jesse Krimes, Kristy Sandoval, Sophia Dawson, and filmmakers Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz.
If individual students wish to attend for free, volunteering is an excellent option, as it allows them to connect more closely with high profile artists and activists, while still enjoying most of the conference unimpeded.
