A TRAVELING EXPLORATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

The Third Annual North Dakota Human Rights Arts Festival is a traveling exhibition that welcomes 2D, 3D, live performance artists, writers, experimental filmmakers and animators to explore human rights as defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Geneva Conventions and additional Protocols and other similar declarations and treaties.

The juried arts festival is accepting submissions for all mediums. Works submitted will be eligible for a juried competition. All artist, student, amateur, or professional, who have works that relate to the discussion of human rights or social justice are invited to submit to the festival.

The mission of the NDHRAF is to educate, engage and facilitate discussion around local and word-wide human rights topics through the work of artists of all mediums.

Artists should submit their work by midnight on Friday, November 29, 2019 to be considered for the festival.
