About this event

Celebrate Human Rights Day with PAN

Join the Horniman Youth Panel and PAN Intercultural Arts for a day of activities exploring what our rights mean to us, to mark Human Rights Day on 10 December.

Pan Intercultural Arts is a London-based arts company using intercultural performance work to help facilitate self-expression and promote deeper understanding of our changing cultural identities. They work with a diverse range of communities, empowering people to use the arts as a tool for change in their lives.

Over the last year young people from PAN have been working with the Horniman Youth Panel to explore our collections and eachothers’ opinions. Now we would like you to join us; these activities have been designed for everyone to get involved.
