Photo Exhibition Shelter City Deventer

20 October – 13 December 2018
Etty Hillesum Lyceum, Deventer

Look through the eyes of photographer Daniella van Bergen and learn about the exceptional people from around the world who stand up against violations of human rights and stand up for the freedoms of others. Whether they are journalists, lawyers, activists, artists – We call them human rights defenders.

Because of their work, human rights defenders are often subject to harassment, violence, and threats. Through the Shelter City programme, human rights defenders can temporarily relocate to Deventer and ten other Dutch Shelter Cities for up to three months, where they can re-energise, strengthen their capacities, and expand their network.
