Over het evenement
At the Shelter City Online Activist Bar, you get the opportunity to engage in a live video conversation with several international activists that are part of the Shelter City programme. What are they fighting for? How does their work for human rights impact their life? What are their worries and what are their dreams?
The aim of the Shelter City Activist Bar is to create interaction and dialogue between human rights defenders and people interested in human rights, to raise awareness about human rights issues. We know from our own experience that a personal conversation with a human rights defender can be a very powerful experience.
Due to the current circumstances, a live event is no longer possible. However, luckily we live in an era with many digital alternatives. Via ZOOM, you will be divided over several small group sessions in which you can have a personal discussion with an activist. The groups will be jump from room to room, placing you with a new activist every time.
On December 3rd, Shelter City activists will be going online during the Online Activistbar. The event will be free, however, you do need to sign up in advance! To keep control over all online participants and make sure that the speakers are safe, we, unfortunately, need to keep the number of visitors limited.
So don't miss out! Sign up for the Shelter City Activist Bar today!
What is the Shelter City programme?
The Shelter City programme hosts human rights activists who are in a dangerous or stressful situation in their home-country. They stay for three months in a Dutch city. During the programme they can relax, recharge, follow workshops on activism and security, and broaden their international network, away from their everyday reality. Sixteen cities worldwide offer temporary relocation and shelter, capacity-building tools, trainings and safety to human rights defenders across the world who stand up against human rights violations in their home countries.
