My Right to Rights : A Video Project

June 26, 2020

Open call for at home art-making activity to generate social change: My Right to RightsYellow Pad Sessions is looking for budding child and youth activists, artists and creative change-makers to participate in a collaborative video project done from the comfort of your own home. My Right to Rights is a short live action and animated video-diary made by and with the youth of the world, reflecting the importance of UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (a.k.a. Global Goals) and human rights in general.

This video project calls for participants to submit their own brief clip to Yellow Pad Sessions to be edited in an animated video. The participants will share reflections on what rights matter to them and why. This is an opportunity to create a platform to voice today’s budding activists who express their rights as valuable global citizens. The film will be created by Yellow Pad Sessions, Filmmaker Bren Lopez Zepeda, and Dr. Natasha Reid of the Visual Arts Centre in Montreal. It will premiere at the United Nations Association Film Festival, TFF MTL, 2020, as well as in a special exhibition at the McClure Gallery and online platforms.

Yellow Pad Sessions welcomes submissions from children and youth from across Canada and the Globe. Participants are welcome to submit in whatever language they are most comfortable speaking in, and contributions from diverse communities are encouraged.
