Constitution Hill presents the 2022 Human Rights Festival!

After two years the only Human Rights Festival in Africa is now back in its full physical form! Each year the festival unites NGOs, social justice organizations, think tanks media partners, and more around human rights issues. Now in its 4th year, the event which is free to the public presents three jam-packed days of conversations, exhibitions; art, film, and live performances.

COVID-19 has proved to be the great accelerator and exacerbator of long-standing inequalities in our communities. Twenty-six years into our democracy, frustrations of ideals not achieved have ignited the next generation of human rights activists with the injustices of poverty and inequality have fueled the desire for bottom-up change.

The festival programme will encourage attendees to interrogate their own beliefs and values and to examine what they are doing to help create a “just” society for all that actively foregrounds economic, political, and social human rights.
