A call-out from street artists to stop child slavery
For the first time, the UN opens its door to street artists to raise awareness on child slavery.
From January 16th to 27th at the United Nations, Street Art for Mankind presents artworks from famous street artists that depict the tragic reality of child labor and child slavery.
15 artists from all over the world have created unique paintings, based on the true stories of child laborers. They invite us to see the terrible conditions of some 168 million children in this situation. But they also provide us with a message of hope and imagine for us what the lives of these children should have been.
This powerful exhibition is brought to the UN by Street Art for Mankind, in partnership with the Permanent Missions of France, Argentina, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States and the International Labour Office.
The opening event of #AtThisAge will take place at 6PM on Tuesday January 17th at the United Nations Headquarters. It will gather the organizers, the Missions to the UN, the artists and the UN community around a unique exhibition. You are all are invited!
