Kingston For Human Rights is a local volunteer-run organisation with the mission to raise local public awareness around the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Each year the committee holds a children’s poster art competition for Kingston schools and colleges to help raise awareness in the local curriculum.

The artwork in this year’s exhibition responds to the theme: Freedom: reimagined.

What does freedom mean to you?  How do we value freedom?  “Freedom is like air we don’t appreciate it until we have lost it.” – Boris Yeltsin.

The posters seek to showcase the children’s understanding of freedom through the powerful medium of art.
