PLAYforRIGHTS is a Swiss-based non-profit organization. It aims to create an intersection between the arts and peacebuilding.
Recalling Article 6 from the Resolution 66/137 United Nations Declaration on Human Rights Education from December 2011: The arts should be encouraged as a means of training and raising awareness in the field of human rights.
We envision to empower young artists and peace-workers, as well as a wider audience, to become aware of social conflicts that violate human rights.
Our desire is to explore those channels of the imagination that connect people with their own processes of artistic creativity. P4R strongly believes that a peaceful future and a just society can be created by building a human web of relationships, where people from different expertise and background go through similar experiences and yet give their own unique expression and meaning to that experience embracing diversity, co-existence and commonalities instead of differences.
