Rights on Show

Darwin Community Legal Service has proudly hosted Rights on Show, an annual human rights art award and exhibition, since 1994.

Rights on Show invites all people in the Northern Territory to comment on the United Nations’ human rights theme for that particular year. Entrants are also welcome to focus on any area of human rights.

Beginner, emerging, and professional artists are encouraged to enter Rights on Show. Each year many people from a broad range of backgrounds participate in Rights on Show to have their say about human rights.

Art is a vital means of engaging the community in human rights discussion, transcending language and cultural barriers to deliver messages of hope, protest and reflection

Previous Rights on Show themes, including ‘Homelessness’, ‘Water for Life’, ‘Quinoa: super food = super economy?’ and ‘Sustainable Energy for All’ have inspired great response from our community, with entries from Katherine, Alice Springs, schools, community groups and asylum seekers, professional and novice artists.

Rights on Show is usually held in December, to celebrate International Human Rights Day.

If you would like to book a free talk about this year’s Rights on Show theme and how you can take part in the show, please contact us.
