Exhibition details

We invited students from all over Manitoba to imagine the future for human rights and how these rights will impact people’s lives. Why do human rights matter to youth today? What will human rights look like in the future?

The submission period ended January 31, 2020. Youth will be notified in early spring if their art has been selected for exhibition. Chosen submissions will be showcased in an amazing outdoor exhibition, called ARTiculate Our Rights, to be presented at The Forks in Winnipeg next summer in celebration of 150 years since the provisional government of Louis Riel ushered in the establishment of the Province of Manitoba.

Exhibition dates

The Museum, in partnership with Manitoba 150, will present the ARTiculate Our Rights outdoor exhibition at the Forks starting in late spring of 2020. The Museum plans to display additional entries in its Expressions gallery on Level 6 from Summer 2020 through Spring 2021.

Who retains the rights to the artwork?

The students and/or groups of students will retain the rights to the artwork. However, submitting an entry grants the Museum a license to use the artwork in perpetuity. 

Wherever possible, any use of the artwork by the Museum will include a credit to the student(s) which will include the student’s name, age and city/town of residence.
