Artivism - using the arts to explore rights, views and opinions
Articulate creates authentically co-designed projects that are built upon the principles of
the 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.
We call it Artivism. Art + Activism = Positive Social Change!
These article numbers have inspired our programme since 2017 and we regularly reference the Convention as we explore local, national and global issues with young people.
Gable End is our current Artivism focus.
It is a series of large-scale, public art installations in towns and cities across Scotland.
The latest street art mural has been installed at Strathclyde University on Cathedral Street.
You can see the story of the Glasgow mural evolving here.
The Dundee mural story is available here.
Come back soon and see how the inter-connected national mural trail evolves
throughout Scotland, installing Edinburgh and Aberdeen in 2024.
