The human right to listen and to be heard: exhibition launch and panel
How do we listen? Untrained to consider an emerging new language of the voiceless. The art for empathy. The visual struggle of painting, film, sculpture and humour can begin a difficult conversation.
We discuss art, listening and the faint grey space bridging polemic ideas as part of the AHSN Humour as a Human Right 2023 Conference, with special thanks to the University of Sydney Library for providing the event location and the exhibition spaces in the Law Library at the Camperdown campus.
