Launch of the Journal of Arts & Communities Special Issue with Amnesty Internationl.
Knowing Ways Conference, North Edinburgh Arts Centre, 9th September 2011

Intellect attended the second launch of the special issue of JAAC ‘Arts and Human Rights’ in collaboration with Amnesty International. The launch took place on the second day of Knowing Ways Conference in Edinburgh. The idea for the special issue had grown from the Freedom of Expression award, which takes place during the Edinburgh Festival each year. The award is presented by Amnesty to an outstanding play, which builds understanding and engagement of human rights.

The special issue was intended to create another space, outside of performance, to showcase and recognize creative works on human rights. The resulting issue is a mixture of academic articles, poems, a visual essay and a play text. Many thanks to Stephanie Knight and the other organizers of conference for an engaging and inspiring day.
