Festival Partner JUNCTURE Co-Presents Yale Symposium April 7-8

Festival partner, JUNCTURE, will be part of the Robert L. Bernstein Human Rights Symposium, at the Yale Law School Thursday, April 7 and Friday, April 8.

JUNCTURE: Exploration in Art and Human Rights is a year-long initiative housed under the Orville H. Schell, Jr. Center for International Human Rights at Yale Law School, and its director James Silk and its deputy director/curator David Kim are building and participating in a panel at the Festival on June 22 entitled “A Duty to Look? Imagery and Human Rights” to be co-presented with JUNCTURE.

This week's symposium at Yale features interdisciplinary discussions with JUNCTURE’s visiting artists, international artists, human rights advocates, and curators. Poet, teacher, and activist Carolyn Forché will deliver the keynote speech on Thursday afternoon. You can view the schedule online.

Just like our Ideas events, these are FREE! Participants need only RSVP to david.kim@yale.edu for the close-looking sessions. You can also stream the event online. This symposium, as the JUNCTURE panel in the Festival, embodies the intersection of arts and ideas, of creativity and community, of beauty and responsibility.
