As violence and inequality cause scarcity and displace populations, impacted groups are frequently discussed as data sets and given impersonal categorizations such as refugee and asylum seeker. This exhibit humanizes conflict and insecurity around the world through compelling images of children at play and at rest.
The children embody hope and inspire an urgency to uphold rights and protections detailed by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (ratified 1989) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (established 1948) in order to offer a common standard of fundamental human rights for all people and all nations.
Featuring the photography of Authority Collective members, Entitlements is a global survey of childhood experiences. It celebrates the resilience of children denied the just and secure environments to which they are entitled.
This outdoor exhibition will be on display on the plaza of the NCCHR and does not require entry to the facility.
