Rights on Show

Subtitle Human rights arts award and exhibition

The Darwin Community Legal Service's Rights on Show is the annual art award and exhibition which focusses on human rights. This much revered art show is now in its 18th year.

The "Homelessness" show received nearly 100 entries in 2011, including entries from remote areas, differently abled groups, students, asylum seekers, accomplished and novice artists alike. All had something to say about being homeless in the Northern Territory.

A myriad of mediums were utilised in 2011, including a giant woven nest, a florally adorned camping tent, mosaics, paper cranes, film, and the People's Choice winner "Cardboard Man", a salute to the "Occupy" movement.

2012 has a series of artist floor talks planned, excursions from asylum seekers and students with discussions to human rights. The 2012 show takes its theme from the UN's 2012 theme: 'Sustainable Energy for All'.

There is no entry fee, no commission taken if artwork for sale and cash prizes up for grabs!
