ARCHITECTURE IS A HUMAN RIGHT

Emergency Architecture and Human Rights and Architects for Refugees, together with World-Architects, have launched a campaign and movement entitled "Architecture is a Human Right". We believe that architecture, space, city and the built environment play a central role in human rights. We have come together to discuss this issue, to attract and involve as many stakeholders as possible, and to develop a common manifesto linking architecture with human rights. Our goal is to make quality spaces accessible to all. We invite individuals and organizations to join us in this exciting and fundamentally important work.

ARTS IN TRANSITION

Arts~in~Transition (AiT) is a program consisting of cultural events and workshops in the fields of architecture, art and design. All workshops are organized and carried out together with artists with and without refugee backgrounds. AiT offers people with a refugee or migration background and the local population the opportunity to network and exchange ideas. In addition, the program aims to promote the skills of refugees and migrants in the fields of architecture, art and design, not only as a pastime, therapeutic method or means of communication, but also as a potential means of finding their own way in society and becoming economically independent in the long term based on their personal interests, talents and skills.
