Journey to Justice are on a mission to galvanise people to take action for social justice through learning about human rights movements and the arts. Can you help us bring their touring exhibition to Norfolk?
Journey to Justice travel the UK with a multi-media exhibition focused on the US civil rights movement and its links to the UK. They tell the stories of people of all ages, genders and ethnicities who were involved in the civil rights movement: people ‘whose voices are not often heard but without whom it would not have happened.’ The exhibition examines what leads people to become and stay active in campaigns and what makes a human rights movement succeed.
Find out more about the exhibition here.
Each Journey to Justice exhibition includes space for the local community to share stories of campaigns for justice in their area. The Young Activist Network are working with young people and organisations from across Norfolk to research, collate, and creatively share stories of local people working for social justice. The exhibition will be youth-led, and we want to showcase youth activism in Norfolk both past and present.
On the 07/03/2020 young activists and representatives from a range of arts, heritage and education organisations met for a Journey to Justice taster day. Journey to Justice volunteers spoke about the exhibition and the people whose stories they share through photos, music, poetry, art, films and audio, interactive features and installations. We then explored how we can collaborate to showcase inspiring and important stories of social justice campaigns in Norfolk.
If you missed the taster day and would like to find out more or get involved in bringing Journey to Justice to Norfolk please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
