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.

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.

Our Artivism model has recently been delivered in partnership with the Children and

Young People's Centre for Justice and Staf. 

You can watch what the young people created here.


Artivism (12:29:31) is a model that was initially designed with support from partners including the Life Changes Trust and Cashback for Creativity and is available across Scotland.
