ACTS OF MEMORY (co-presented with Fierce)
Anniversary an act of memory: solo, collective and multi-lingual recitations from memory of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Are you passionate about Human Rights?
VIVID is inviting people from Birmingham to take part in a collective recitation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights with artist Monica Ross. Take this chance to learn a small part of the Declaration of Human Rights and recite it in public, in your own language, as part of this unique performance.
An act of memory is a performance series in 60 acts focusing on the importance and relevance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Everyone is welcome and we hope that the recitation will fully reflect the many voices and languages of Birminghams communities.
We wish to include many speakers and are interested in hearing Articles from the Declaration memorised and recited in many different languages including British Sign Language.
If you, your group, or organisation would like to take part in this project, please express your interest by emailing Nicola Lowery or calling VIVID on 0121 766 7876. Alternatively you can attend an information session at VIVID - more details below.
SAT 17 MAR | 2 - 3:30PM | FREE
