to Apr 30 | HUMAN RIGHTS FESTIVAL | Cultura na Rua: Abril em Lisboa | FREE-TBD
April 18 - April 30FREE-TBD
From Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers”.
From Cultura na Rua, the organizers of this month-long, very-much-needed-today festival:
“In April we’ll be going out onto the streets and taking freedom with us. We’ll be celebrating individual and collective freedom of expression, of thought, of religion, through different art forms. Music, theatre, cinema, exhibitions, literature, and debate are the pretexts for seeing and hearing people’s testimonies and learning about heritage, keeping alive the history of resistance that has inspired and continues to inspire citizens’ movements.
As part of its mission to ensure that the collective memory of the values of the April revolution is both remembered and preserved, Museu do Aljube will be joining this program which invites all of us to take part in a global exercise in the name of freedom and democracy.
Celebrating April…in Lisbon!”
