    What is Human Rights Nights?

    HUMAN RIGHTS NIGHTS is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting a  human  rights culture and the respect of civil rights by giving value to cultural diversity and participation in contemporary plural society. Founded in 2013 as an cultural and solidarity organisation, Human Rights Nights is active from more than 10 years at local and global level through the production of cultural and artistic events, communication campaigns, social projects and international cooperation, to fulfill the ethical vision for a just, equal and peaceful world, in harmony with nature.

A programme of human rights that is the expression of a permanent campaign to raise awareness on human rights, the environment and cultural diversity. Human Rights Nights will tour in Romagna - Forlì, Ravenna, Rimini and Cesena in May, June - and participate to human rights events in Italy and the world.

    HRNs as a local and global Network

    Human Rights Nights is a key reference center for human rights in Bologna and worldwid, in partnerships with a strong network of local and international organizations, institutions and activists. Together, we develop every year specific human rights themes to deeply address during the festival or through social communication campaigns. Human Rights Nights has always focused on the plurality of contemporary society, committed to promote an intercultural society that respects people without any forms of racism and discrimination. Specifically, it aims to create opportunities for meeting and spaces for communication, to promote citizenship through active participation and advocacy.

    What do we do?

    Our main activity is the Human Rights Nights Festival, but we also work throughtout the whole year to achieve our goals of promoting human and civil rights - through cultural and artistic events, social communication campaigns, social actions, lobbying and advocacy, education and rehabilitation projects for youth, in partnerships with human rights festivals in the world.
