OCO ‘Rights in their Eyes’ art exhibition
OCO ‘Rights in their Eyes’ art exhibition on Temple Street’s Link Corridor for two months from 2nd Feb
Celebrating 25 years of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in Ireland, 1992 – 2017
The OCO (Ombudsman for Children) is undertaking a series of unique and innovative projects as part of the 25th Anniversary celebrations of Ireland’s Ratification of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child.
The aims for the year-long programme, broadly speaking, are to raise awareness and understanding of children’s rights by re-visiting the promise we made to children upon ratifying the UNCRC in 1992 and renewing the promise we made to them.
Children and young people are the focus of our work and this year we wanted to invite them to be part of our team planning the year. We decided to offer these exceptional young artists their first art commission to create a new piece of work which expresses their views on what it is like to be a child or young adult growing up in Ireland today. Their work are symbols of the 25th Anniversary and an important part of our celebrations.
Rights in their Eyes is therefore an exhibition of work featuring the Texaco Children’s Art Competition 2017 winners supported by the Ombudsman for Children’s Office and Temple Street is facilitating this exhibition from Friday 2nd March to Friday 30th March 2018.
Come and view the Rights in their Eyes exhibition on Temple Street’s Link Corridor (leading from main hospital corridor to ED and OPD)
