The Rights Studio is an invitation into a new way of thinking and doing, one which begins with questioning everything we take for granted. In particular, how we contribute – or think we contribute – to a better world. We will not have all the answers, but we want to ask better questions. Sign up to our journal to read about some of this thinking and ask us beautiful questions!
We don’t believe that art, the enjoyment of, or participation in, is only reserved for established artists. We think everyone can be creative. There are various ways that you can contribute to ongoing projects, by, for example, taking a photo, recording a sound, drawing, asking questions, joining conversations. Go here to find out more.
We are collaborating with people who share our values, whether they are artists, writers, scientists, organisations, companies, and individuals, in order to provoke new conversations around human rights. Find out about how this has been done and get in touch if you have ideas for collaborating with us.
While we’re not a creative agency, creativity is all too often overlooked or categorised as just a design or communications issue. There are various ways that we can help you, whether it’s in strategy development, public speaking, hosting creative conversations, rule breaking, creative problem solving, or hosting an art exhibition.
Let’s be honest - while we are not frantically fundraising in order to exist, nor are we seeking project funding to deliver services nobody asked for, we do need money to do our jobs: to write, draw, speak, organise, gather, design, produce, print, share.
The Rights Studio was initially funded in large part through our sister organisation - where the Rights Studio was born - the Child Rights International Network - CRIN.
We were also supported by a large donation from Anker Capital in 2021.
Various collaborations are funded through other philanthropic groups, like Ignite Philanthropy and academic institutions, including the Institute of Development Studies.
Our work on child labour is funded through the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
Our joint project with CRIN and the Little Inventors was funded by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
