We were invited to show art and participate at the Carter Center in January 2015, and again in June 2016. Last year we invited President Carter, his staff and 100 International Human Rights Defenders attending a forum on leadership against violence aimed at women and girls around the world.
There were Human Rights Leaders from around the world, including African, Europe, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. Many risked their lives to attend. We know that the arts are a way of getting their cause known to the world.
We felt honored to be part of this forum last year and look forward to helping brainstorm ideas and solutions at the next one in June. Special thanks to the Carter Center Staff, especially Karin Ryan.
