Hello and welcome to the annual Derry Human Rights and Arts Festival.

This year we are delighted to be celebrating the 5th year of our festival, which will include both live and online events.

This year, Derry Human Rights and Arts Festival aims to host a variety of arts events – including film, storytelling, campaign sessions and creative workshops; to explore issues of human rights across the world, and think about how we can all work to create a world in which we are all supported to access fair and equal opportunities.
