Community Partnership: Rhythm & Rights Program for Youth

Sep 09, 2022

The Human Rights Commission is excited to announce the launch of a program for youth aged 12-19 in partnership with the Dartmouth-based MacPhee Centre for Creative Learning.

This work has been led by our African Nova Scotian Liaison and Education  Officer, Samm Reid and our Mi’kmaq/Indigenous Liaison and Education Officer, Angela Doyle-Faulkner.

Rhythm & Rights aims to help youth explore and understand their human rights through artistic activities, using art and song writing to break down misconceptions and better understand how to self-advocate. Youth will learn what their human rights are, explore what it means to defend their human rights and how to stand up for those rights in all aspects of their lives. This program will help promote and protect the human rights of youth, broaden their knowledge, empower, and engage them in discussions. The program will also promote understanding of the role of the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission and how it  can be used  as a resource to support  well-being.

The program will run for 10 weeks, every Thursday from 4-6 p.m., beginning September 22.
