Art Lab - Dialogue with world artists for human rights


To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UNESCO, a space for dialogue and intercultural exchange, will give the floor to international artists selected by the National Theater of Chaillot.

Dancers, choreographers and visual artists, writers and actors will present their artistic research and describe their personal journeys.

They are witnesses, sometimes victims, of abuse of human dignity. As messengers, they address the condition of migrants and refugees, multiple cultural identities and
collective memory, art therapy in post-conflict situations, and gender-related issues.

GUESTS (preliminary programme): Taïgué Ahmed • Marcia Barcellos • Fabrice Bwabulamutima • Alonzo King • Bachar Mar-Khalifé • Phia Ménard • José Montalvo • Lia Rodrigues • Freddy Tsimba.

An exceptional encounter in the presence of Didier Deschamps, Director of the National theatre of Chaillot, facilitated by Audrey Pulvar.
