HRWeekend: Practice or Preach? Protest Anno 2020

Together with happyChaos you will dive into mass movements through an interactive program: a dialogue between generations, (ex-)activists, experts, artists and clicktivists.

Organised by
Human Rights Weekend

Human Rights Watch, De Balie, and partners present the eighth edition of Human Rights Weekend. Find out where you stand and learn more about human rights, by participating in a weekend of films, discussions, and more. Meet film directors, Human Rights Watch researchers, journalists, and others and discover your position on topics such as the link between human rights violations and your clothing, the struggles involved in being intersex, and the use of protest as a tool for change. The event covers a wide range of countries, from France to China and from Bangladesh to Chile. Join us in Amsterdam, and find out where you stand.

All programs will be in English.

Would you like a Passepartout or Day pass? Order these with the ticket-link of an HRWeekend event of your choice. With these passes you still need to reserve your seats for the separate events you wish to attend. You can do so with the corresponding ticket-link and selecting the Passepartout or Day pass ticket-option.

Human Rights Weekend is made possible by vfonds.
