Expressions of Humanity

Expressions of Humanity

Expressions of Humanity” is our cycle of events that use the power of arts and human stories to raise awareness of social and human rights issues. In collaboration with Rotondes and other partner organizations, Time For Equality organizes a few events each year to create a place of raising awareness, sharing and acting. 

In pursuit of Time For Equality’s motto “Learn, Share and Take action”, Expressions of Humanity offers various forms of “lecture” of social issues through cultural expressions and humanist approach. Each event aims at inspiring the civil society to take initiatives and answering the question “What kind of world do we want to live in?”. 

“Each of our events sets a plan for action, sowing the seeds for the long-term.” Rosa Brignone Time for Equality | Rotondes – Cultural exploration

During the cycle of 2020-21, despite the difficulties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly thanks to the close collaboration of Rotondes, we were able to organize three events by combining physical and virtual ones for the first time. Throughout this cycle, we touched upon different stories surrounding international migration from different points of view.

We are also proud to announce that we were able not only to strengthen the existing partnership with other associations but also to develop new ones. Many thanks to the participants and our partners.

The 2018-19 cycle addressed very diverse and often taboo human rights issues, such as violence against women, human trafficking and exploitation, migration, marginalization of indigenous communities, in a context of artistic and interactive format. Each event had a starting point, such as film screening, presentation of a book, or artistic performance, followed by inspiring testimonies and a debate with the public.

The exchange between the public and the stakeholders provided the opportunity to discuss solutions together, to see the links between what is happening at the global level and the local reality, and to strengthen the culture of engagement and collaboration at the local level.
