Organized by CLADE within the scope of its campaign for non discrimination in education, the exhibition will be presented at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, from 15th to 21st February, 2011.
Giving visibility to the issue of discrimination in education is key to overcome this harsh reality. This is the core objective of the photography exhibition No to discrimination in education! Views from Latin America and the Caribbean, which will be presented at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, from 15th to 21st February, 2011.
The exhibition will move to the Novotel Tour Eiffel on the 22nd, commemorating the 4th General Assembly of the Global Campaign for Education (GCE), an event that will gather more than 150 activists working towards the right to education all over the world.
The exhibition, featuring 34 photographs taken by various artists, is an initiative of the Latin American Campaign for the Right to Education (CLADE). This roving exhibition was already presented in Sao Paulo, Brazil (May 2010), and in Buenos Aires, Argentina (September 2010).
“The photographs show scenes of daily school life in different corners of Latin America and the Caribbean, giving visibility to the reality of these groups and people who are systematically discriminated within and without the education system. This way, while celebrating difference, the exhibition also aims to point out the still remaining challenges a decade after the signature of the Education for All commitments in Dakar, so that the right to education can become real for all people”, says Camilla Croso, General Coordinator of CLADE.
This exhibition captures the realization of the right to education of indigenous and African-descendant populations, of persons with disabilities, of persons deprived of freedom, of girls and women, of early childhood and young people and adults, as well as education in contexts of displacement and in rural and peripheral urban areas. The exhibition also highlights the situation in Haiti, a country ravaged by an earthquake in January 2010.
