    Description: This exhibition, which incorporates two phases, is a collaboration between Conflict Textiles, Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre (RVACC) and Fundació Ateneu Sant Roc. It builds on previous collaborations with both organisations over the last 10 years.
    Through the medium of arpilleras, created in various continents, it charts global progress on the journey to realising children’s rights, particularly relating to family life, play, education, health and protection from violence. The impact of, and response to, violations of children’s rights is uncovered and the question is asked: How can we embrace a culture of children's rights?

    Phase 1 of the exhibition, hosted by Fundació Ateneu Sant Roc in Badalona (10th November – 10th December 2020), is framed around the United Nations World Children's Day, 20th November. The 2020 commemoration marks the 30th anniversary of the UN General Assembly adoption of both the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, and the Convention on the Rights of the child.

    In phase 2, the exhibition moves to Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre, coinciding with the Spring Equinox on 20th March, which heralds the beginning of Spring; a time for children to play outdoors.

    A number of associated activities will complement the exhibition programme. Further information will be available in early 2021.
