Nuart Plus 2017 – Brave – Nuart × Amnesty International

Brave: Nuart × Amnesty International present the case of Human Rights activist Sakris Kupila

(Audio problem from 7:42–end)

Panel debate with Sakris Kupila (FI), Ricky Lee Gordon (ZA) and Annamaria Guttierrez (CU/NO), hosted by Sara MacNeice, Head of Global Campaigns, Amnesty International

Adding his voice to Amnesty International's Brave campaign, Ricky Lee Gordon will create a mural of Sakris Kupila - a human rights defender from Finland who has fought tirelessly for transgender rights in the face of harassment and intimidation - as part of this year's Nuart Festival.

The 'Brave' campaign calls for an end to attacks against those defending human rights, in a context of increasing global hostility against activists. The campaign focuses on people who are taking enormous risks to stand up for our rights through exploring the power of art to push boundaries and stimulate debate.

Joining the panel debate will be Stavanger's Head of Municipal Council for Culture and Sport, Annamaria Gutierrez, who was instrumental in the Venstre (Left) Party's successful attempt to abolish the law which made it obligatory for anyone in Norway to be sterilised when undergoing the legal process of changing their gender.
