In 2014/15, the American Repertory Theater and the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard University will launch The A.R.T. of Human Rights, a groundbreaking collaboration that uses the arts and the humanities to explore some of the most pressing human rights issues of our time. With support from a Mass Humanities project grant, this new series will feature public conversations with leading artists, academics, and activists, as well as educational and artistic partnerships with local schools and organizations. Building on the Carr Center’s commitment to advancing human rights principles, and the A.R.T.’s mission to “expand the boundaries of theater,” The A.R.T. of Human Rights is designed to foster a new model for community education, civic engagement, and creative expression.
The A.R.T. of Human Rights is directed and hosted by Timothy Patrick McCarthy, award-winning Harvard faculty member and director of the Carr Center’s Sexuality, Gender, and Human Rights Program, and co-produced by Ryan McKittrick, A.R.T. Director of Artistic Programs/Dramaturg; Brendan Shea, A.R.T. Manager of Education & Community Programs; and Ari Barbanell, A.R.T. Director of Special Projects.
