You are welcome at the opening of the exhibition on International Human Rights Day: Monday 10 December from 16.00 to 18.00 hrs!
Who is your human rights hero, and why? This is the question we asked various inspirational people from very different walks of life. Artist Julia Brants depicted their answers through unique portraits created by photographer Gregor Servais. The result is an exhibition that will inspire young and old, and get them thinking about human rights.
Did you know that we have almost ninety different human rights? They are all designed to protect people throughout the world, including you, from the misuse of power. They help us to lead a dignified life. The thirty main human rights were endorsed by the international community on 10 December 1948 in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Although this is the most-widely translated document in the world, many people in the Netherlands and abroad are still unaware of their rights as human beings. Or how important it is for people to defend these rights.
Human rights heroes often risk their lives questioning wrongdoings and abuse. In some countries, equal opportunities, freedom of speech and privacy, for example, are still not a matter of course.
To draw attention to this matter and highlight the declaration, which is seventy years old but still very much alive, My Human Rights Hero is presenting the contents of this historic document in a form that everyone can understand. In addition, well-known (and less well-known) people are using this compelling exhibition to talk about the people who inspire them in their own human rights work. They include the American lawyer Christina Moreno, Ralph Groenheijde (co-founder of TrashUre Hunt), Marcel Kleizen from Humanity Cab and Kathleen Ferrier, politician and specialist in the field of development cooperation.
My Human Rights Hero is an initiative of the human rights organisation Justice and Peace Nederland in collaboration with Het Nutshuis, Netherlands Helsinki Committee, Kinder- en jongerenrechtswinkel Den Haag and NJCM. The exhibition was made possible thanks to funding from Fonds 1818.

As follow-up to the movie there is further discussion with the audience about the topic and its relevance for The Hague. E.g. by a Q&A with experts or a workshop.
The evening starts at 18.00 with a vegan sustainable dinner by Cafe Juni (optional). At 19.30 the movie screening starts (and the doors will be closed). After the movie there is room for further conversation with a drink. The event is in English, but Dutch subtitles are included if available.
You can support and sponsor TransitieCinema through donation. Or co-operate as organization with us to highlight a relevant topic through a movie. For more details please check the TransitieCinema website.

You are welcome at the opening of the exhibition on Tuesday 18 December from 17.00 to 20.00 hrs!
From 18 December onwards, the My Human Rights Hero exhibition will be supplemented with work created by four graduation students from the Royal Academy of Art The Hague for their own annual exhibition. As part of their degree programme, these promising photographers drew inspiration from the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Based on Nelson Mandela’s famous handshake, Caspar von Eugen examines the handshake as an instrument. Indra Gleizde is moved by the sense of self-awareness among many human rights activists. She showcases this self-reflection in found footage, video and poster material. The born feminist Jill Verweijen uses photography and video to show that feminism can sometimes rear its head in the most unexpected places. And Daniela Rosca has created a multimedia, three-dimensional installation to demonstrate the propelling effect of using digital resources in the fight for human rights. She conducts research into the ‘dark web’ case of sexual abuse of children and tools that help combat the problem, such as a virtually created boy.
