Freedom: A Child’s Dream Artwork
Glebe Montessori School students presented their artwork in an exhibition entitled Freedom: A Child’s Dream at the Certosa di San Giacomo in Capri, Italy, in conjunction with the photo exhibition Freedom Fighters: The Kennedys and the Struggle for Civil Rights. The opening of this exhibition was held on July 18, 2015, with the participation of Fawn Wilson White, C.M. International Chairman, Amici della Certosa di San Giacomo, Capri and Kerry Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Europe. Along with GMS students, Capri and Belgian students and internally displaced Syrian and Iraqi refugee children participated in the exhibition.
The human rights issues raised by the exhibition paralleled GMS students’ exploration on topics of human rights for children. Their artworks illustrate what they learned and the messages they wished to convey.
