9 - 11 July 2015
The first Galway International Summer School on the Arts and Human Rights will take place from 9 - 11 July 2015 at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Co-directed by Prof. Michael O’Flaherty, Director of the Irish Centre for Human Rights and Dominique Bouchard, Curator at the Hunt Museum, it will bring together arts practitioners with human rights activists and scholars to explore their shared space. Events will take the form of panel discussions, exhibitions and performances.
The global theme for 2015 will be 'Belonging'. The Summer School will consist of keynote addresses, plenary discussions, and themed discussions on three parallel tracks – literature and human rights; the visual arts and human rights; and music and human rights. The opening speaker will be the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Cultural Rights, Farida Shaheed.
