Spirou, défenseur des droits de l’homme

Inauguration on the 4th of February, 10am, @Art Gallery


Spirou magazine has joined efforts for the anniversary campaign launched by the UN human rights Office with a special edition of the magazine, dedicated to human rights, that has been released on October, 10, 2018. In this edition, the 30 articles of the Declaration have been depicted by Spirou’s most talented artists and authors.

Spirou fight inequalities, protects the weak and shows courage and generosity. Some of the value of the Declaration of Human rights are echoed in his behaviour.
That’s why Spirou is now a Human Rights
Champion of the UN Human Rights Office.
His commitment to the rights of others is represented by his salute, two fingers together pointed upwards. Launched on 14 September during the Brussels Comic Strip Festival, the Spirou salute was made by hundreds of visitors to show their support for human rights and shared on social media with the hashtag #spirou4rights. You too can (re)affirm your commitment and share it on social media!

In addition, to the special edition, a #spirou4rights exhibition dedicated to human rights and the Declaration has been created and has been shown in October at the Geneva United Nations Headquarters. In February, we offer you the opportunity to come and see this exhibition in our Art Gallery.
