Riposte presents PROTECTION, in aid of Amnesty International UK

If you are passionate about human rights and interested in meeting inspirational artists who use the power of art as activism, then we have an exciting opportunity for you! 


To mark the 70th anniversary of the declaration of human rights Riposte, in aid of Amnesty International UK, has curated a group exhibition featuring women and non-binary artists that will run from 10—16 December at Coal Drops Yard. Thirty artists including Guerilla Girls, Esther Mahlangu, Hattie Stewart, Joy Miessi, Juno Calypso, Kelly Anna, Lotte Andersen, Lynnie Zulu, Maisie Cousins, Mona Chalabi, Nathalie du Pasquier, Phoebe Collings-James, Steph Wilson and many more have been invited to create work in response to the theme of “Protection”. All profits from art sales will be donated to Amnesty International UK.


We are looking for Amnesty Student Activists to join Riposte and some of the incredible artists featured in Protection for an intimate dinner and evening of conversation exploring the themes of human rights and the arts.  The idea is to bring students and artists together to encourage shared learning about human rights issues and the way art can be used as a tool for activism. 


The dinner takes place on Thursday 13th December, 18:30 – 21:30 at Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross and delicious food will be provided by Bodega Rita’s.
