Worldwide project

TO WRITE THE HUMAN RIGHTS is a worldwide artistic project which includes a pedagogical method. It can be implemented on various scales: a  large subway station, on city walls, on a school wall, in museums, as urban furniture, in parks, and at home with families.

TO WRITE THE HUMAN RIGHT IN PORTUGAL – TO WRITE THE CHARTER OF FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS ON THE WALLS OF THE CITIES 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 Spain? We responded to the European Commission’s request to disseminate the “European Charter of Fundamental Rights” through our teaching kits and works of art in schools in three countries: France, Portugal and Spain. The project was carried out with our partners Quartiers du Monde in France, the Incita Association in Barcelona and CIEJD, Jacques Delors European Information Center in Lisbon.

TO WRITE THE HUMAN 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 pencils. Several activities can result, including a contest and the selection of the best drawings. See our pedagogical kit available for free access here.

2-The ceramic workshop and design of a public artwork: 
If the project initiator seeks to create a perennial ceramic artwork and obtains public and/or private funding, Inscrire will organize a participatory workshop. The artwork is then installed permanently in public spaces. We usually organize the two workshops one after another, which allows us to reach a large number of participants. Information available upon request by email.


To write Europe on the city walls of Spain, France, and Portugal, with the support of the European Commission

These ceramics projects, in the different districts of Barcelona, are the result of a pedagogical method of reflection and awareness on the Charter of European Rights, produced with our methodology and addressed to disadvantaged young people, belonging to local associations, that cooperate with our partner Incita.

In Barcelona
In Casca Antic, Torre Barro, and Sant Marti, our partner Incita worked with Sant Augusti Convent, Sant Marti de Provencal, and the Community Center Zona Nord. The 100 young people from these community centers benefited from the European Rights workshops organized by Incita. Later, Inscrire’s team worked with these young people during ceramics painting workshops.

Our Portuguese partner CIEJD (Jacques Delors European Information Center) organized a meeting in Lisbon, bringing together 200 young people from France, Spain, and Portugal on the theme of European citizenship. All Inscrire projects were exhibited at the Franco Portuguese Institute in Lisbon.
