Australian Human Rights Centre
Justice for All? International Criminal Court Conference 13-15 February 2012
Award-winning American playwright, performer, feminist and human rights activist Eve Ensler, visited UNSW to attend the International Criminal Court Conference and to give the Australian Human Rights Centre (AHRCentre) Annual Public Lecture. The Nelson Meers Foundation is delighted to have supported Ms Ensler’s visit to Australia.
Ms Ensler’s remarkable performance lecture, “Until the Violence Stops”, was held on Sunday 12 February 2012 at the Sydney Theatre. Proceeds from the lecture went towards supporting the work of the Australian Human Rights Centre.
Why did we fund this project? Ensler’s ability to utilise the arts to communicate broadly on significant social issues such as human rights and violence against women is consistent with our own belief in the potency of the arts in this regard.
