Tallaght Community Arts & Alternative Entertainments in association with OPW/Pearse Museum and Music Generation South Dublin
In 1948 the UN Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations. In the intervening 72 years artists and musicians internationally have taken inspiration from the declaration whenever events in the wider world have threatened or exposed human rights abuses. The COVID-19 pandemic, the international response to George Floyd’s murder and the Black Lives Matter Movement have provoked young artists from across South Dublin to respond to these events.
Tallaght Community Arts & Alternative Entertainments have worked with young musicians and performers to explore the history and role of Protest Songs and the UN Declaration of Human Rights. Musicians from Alternative Entertainments – SubSounds Music Collective have the created a new song for 2020 and recorded classic protest songs. Performers from Tallaght Community Arts – The Rising Generation have recorded the 31 Articles of the UN Declarationof Human Rights on location at the Pearse Museum.
An installation of placards of the Preamble and 30 Articles of the Declaration will be in the walled garden of the Pearse Museum from Wednesday 16 – Friday 18 September.
Declare and Protest is produced by Tallaght Community Arts & Alternative Entertainments.
