MIND MOSAIC-MIND YOUR RIGHTS and TO WRITE THE HUMAN RIGHTS is to rethink the people’s social role and their participation to create a harmonious life between beings and the world. Through art, its purpose is to raise awareness of the rights and duties of human beings among themselves and for the earth. This project is accessible to all those who, by their enthusiasm and philosophy of hope, wish to become project leaders by sharing it and creating it with their friends, community, responsible institutions, teachers of their children’s schools, and collectives.
Why Ireland? We made a partnership with the GEF – Generation Europe Foundation, which has established a network of partners across the 27 European countries. Together, to further develop our methodology, we responded to the request of the European Commission, to expand our Pedagogical Kit and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, through art with GEF network in France, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, and Romania.
This project teaches the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU through our Pedagogical Kit. It has reached 237 schools, 583 teachers, and 11300 students in these 7 countries.
In Ireland 14 schools took part in the project, with 22 teachers and 400 students.
MIND MOSAIC-MIND YOUR RIGHTS is designed as 2 distinct and complementary projects:
1-The paper workshop:
allows you to work with a large number of participants at no cost, as you only need paper and color pencils. In Ireland, a competition was run among 11 participating schools, and the award-winning St. Ailbe’s School in Tipperary, was selected to create a public artwork with artist Niamh Synott. See our pedagogical kit available in free access here.
2-Workshops and artwork with Niamh Synott.
The winning school organized a week-long workshop with artist Niamh Synott. The students’ paintings express their views on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. The large painting illustrates the six chapters of the Charter. Information available upon request by email.
