Art of Hope Project

Recognizing that art has the power to represent and convey the experience of genocide and mass human rights violations in unique ways, the Art of Hope Initiative strives to examine, exhibit, and educate people about the work both of artists who have survived mass murder and other sorts of atrocities and artists who grapple with these issues. Through exhibitions, lectures, symposia, and a genocide and human rights awareness festival, this project seeks to enrich existing scholarship while providing a space for public engagement of genocide and human rights as both a historical problem and a human experience. In 2011, CGHR opened Reflections, a new exhibition spaces in Engelhard Hall.
