Who is ART IN ACTION?

 

The Art in Action team is the creative force behind Project: Urban Canvas.

 

Art in Action is an enthusiastic group of artistic professionals who, on a volunteer basis, provide creative support for the Amnesty International Toronto Organization (AITO).

 

Members of our group are always busy. We are often designing items for events, fundraising, and merchandise; creating publicity and promotional material; photographing and/or filming special events; and developing promotional videos.

 

Our group has a diverse membership, consisting of graphic designers, photographers, film editors, writers, and multi-media artists. Utilizing the imagination and talent of our members, we also develop our own fundraising and awareness projects to support and promote Amnesty International's human rights work.

What is AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL all about?

 

Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of “ordinary” people who work together to achieve extraordinary results. Each day we stand in solidarity with–and help protect–individuals and communities around the world whose human rights are under attack.

 

We appeal for the violations to stop. We mobilize public pressure to prevent human rights abuses from taking place. And we support Amnesty’s campaigns through our financial contributions. Amnesty members come from many different cultures and backgrounds. What unites us is our determination to build a world where all people live in dignity, security and freedom.

 

Vision and Mission: Amnesty International’s vision is of a world in which every person enjoys all the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and other international human rights standards.

 

In pursuit of this vision, Amnesty International’s mission is to undertake research and action focused on preventing and ending grave abuses of the rights to physical and mental integrity, freedom of conscience and expression, and freedom from discrimination, within the context of its work to promote all human rights.
