AFCA launched a Campaign of Awareness for Children’s Rights to Arts and Culture celebrating three different occasions: its 10th anniversary, the 10th anniversary of the UNESCO 2005 convention for Cultural Diversity, and the 25th anniversary of the UN convention of the Rights of the Child.
The campaign is mainly based on eighteen principles expressed in 27 languages to state the right of all children, all over the world, to enjoy Arts and Culture. This is the content of the Charter, created by La Baracca - Testoni Ragazzi.
The project has obtained enormous support all over Europe, and has been endorsed and sponsored by significant Italian and foreign institutions. It was awarded by the Italian President of the Republic.
Our objective is to launch a non-profit Cultural promotion campaign in Egypt, expressing rights of every Egyptian child to enjoy Arts and Culture. In order to reach the biggest number of children and families and to help raising awareness of the importance of those rights, the campaign is declined in 4 different points:
- Artistic workshops with students
- A campaign in cooperation with our media sponsors, audio on “Radio Hits”, video on “ONtv” and Press on “Ahram Online” http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/96135.aspx
- A Visual Artsexhibition presenting 18 paintings by Italian artists, this is the content of the Charter of Children Rights first exhibited during Hakawy’s 5th edition and then touring in different cultural places of Cairo.
- Applying each of the eighteen principles in AFCA’s activities
