Two Human Rights Internships (part-time, paid)

In the context of the project Marginalised Persons as Human Rights Volunteers, we are happy to offer two paid Human Rights Internships, for the period 1 February to 31 December 2020.

The project acknowledges the challenges faced by marginalised groups in engaging in NGO activities and seeks to overcome these challenges by providing as broad a learning experience as possible.

The two Interns will be fully integrated into our team, participating in projects, activities, advocacy efforts, public initiatives and formulation of our strategies. Together with the Interns, we will also identify and support our Interns’ key learning needs, such as linguistic, IT, administrative/management or other.

‘Larger Than Life!’ exhibition now open

On Friday 13 December we opened our exhibition of human rights posters, ‘Larger Than Life!‘ as part of the project supported Arts Council Malta. It was a fun, vibrant and engaging evening where the 6 fabulous artworks could be fully appreciated…with wine and pizza 😉

In ‘Larger Than Life!’ we commissioned 6 human rights posters from established local artists: Ed Dingli, Sarah Maria Scicluna, Magda Azab, Seb Tanti Burló, Luke Caruana, Daniela Attard. Our idea was to produce posters unlike our usual NGO poster. Instead, we wanted stunning artworks that happen to be posters grappling with a human rights theme. The 6 artists did a great job, their works vary in approach, tone, colour, mood and theme thereby giving the exhibition a truly composite feel.
