Artivism - using the arts to explore rights, views and opinions
Articulate creates projects that are built upon the principles of the
UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, including:
Article 12: Every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously.
Article 29: Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full.
Article 31: Every child has the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.
These article numbers have inspired this programme and we will reference the Convention as we explore local, national and global issues and themes with young participants.
The programme includes individual mini projects called Code, Track, Click and Journey
and are delivered in partnership with renowned teaching artists such as Craig Steele, Graeme Smillie and Margaret Mitchell.
Artivism (12:29:31) is a model that was designed with support from partners including the Life Changes Trust and Cashback for Creativity and is available across Scotland.
