Nuart × Amnesty panel debate
Friday 13th April
49 Belmont Street, AB10 1JS
Panel debate with Amal Azzudin (SO/UK), Carrie Reichardt (UK), Professor Sarah Pedersen (UK) and Dr. Fiona Jane Brown (UK), chaired by Amnesty International UK Scotland Office.
Taking inspiration from Carrie Reichardt’s work for Nuart Aberdeen, which references the North East Suffragette movement and the witch trials of early modern Scotland, this talk discusses how art and activism can help make visible the invisible by raising awareness about hidden histories and present day injustices.
Amal Azzudin is a campaigner for human rights and social justice in Scotland, and is well known as one of the Glasgow Girls, a group of seven school girls from Drumchapel High School who campaigned to stand up against dawn raids, detention and deportation of asylum seekers in Glasgow.
Sarah Pedersen is a Professor of Communication and Media and the Director of Research in Communication, Marketing and Media at Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.
Dr. Fiona Jane Brown is a folklorist, educator, storyteller and founder of Hidden Aberdeen Tours.
