Using the arts as a vehicle for social change and transformation.
On the first of May 2018 we invited Tasmanians to share their human rights stories. Funded by the Sandy Duncanson Social Justice Bursary we travelled across Tasmania collecting stories of people from diverse backgrounds, with harrowing experiences of human rights violations.
These stories became a locally produced documentary Citizen, which grew into the community arts and human rights organisation Citizen Tasmania. The film Citizen and accompanying book Together We Stand was a local publication supported by the University of Tasmania, and produced by Workhorse Studio.
The publicity surrounding the project and the success of the film inspired the creation of the not for profit human rights and arts organisation Citizen Tasmania.
HUMAN RIGHT STORIES
Citizen is honoured to be able to give these stories a platform and to elevate these voices so that we, as a community, can learn from these stories.
These stories are truly personal experiences of human rights violations.
