This Saturday, Amnesty International, one of the biggest human rights organizations in the world will celebrate its 50th Birthday in Sefton Park from 12pm – 8pm. There will be a fun filled day with audiences, speakers, poetry, music, food, massages, bouncy castle, and kids crafts.
The focus will be on the Arab Spring Uprising and North Africa. Amnesty will bring all sorts of different musicians and presenters talking about persecution.
SOLA ARTS is working in partnership with Amnesty to support this significant event offering films form our Artists in Exile Group, and poetry & story telling from Pa Madou Bojang who will also hold an audience about persecution of Gambian journalists. As well as music from Anwar originally form Somalia, who will play the Oud.
We also will hold workshops for children to paint a large scale set hands using big Arabic design incorporating the Amnesty logo and small hands to take home.
So bring your children and join us. It will be an amazing and interesting day!
