The Edmund Rice Centre for Justice and Community Education is hosting the Justice Through the Arts Schools Event 2020
A Day of Creativity, Inspiration, and Learning
This is an invitation for teachers, students and people who are interested, to attend the Justice Through the Arts Schools Event 2020.
The event showcases how the arts can be a powerful way to raise awareness about issues of social justice, human rights and eco justice and help build the capacity for social change.
You will see all the wonderful Performances and Presentations that the participating schools prepared as part of the Justice Through the Arts Schools Project in 2019.
There will also be an opportunity for students to develop their own creativity and ideas through interaction.
As part of the event, the author Melina Marchetta will speak about the importance of promoting Justice Through the Arts.
The 3 Areas of Focus on the day are:
• Indigenous Issues
• Refugees and People Seeking Asylum
• Climate Change- with particular emphasis on how it affects the People of the Pacific
Schools presenting on this day have chosen one of the Areas of Focus above and prepared a performance/ presentation incorporating an area(s) of the arts such as music, singing, dance, literature, film etc. featuring the element of HOPE.
