In the exhibition See what I mean?, children from around the world express themselves on topics like school, society and experiences – in good and bad times. The exhibition is made in cooperation with The International Museum of Children’s Art.
Democracy and the freedom of expression are high on the agenda for the 200th Norwegian national constitutional anniversary. The Norwegian Constitution states that all have the right to free expression, and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that also children have the right to the freedom of expression. Drawing and creating art are important ways to state your opinion.
The artists in See what I mean? are children and youth between the ages of 8 and 17 from Thailand, India, Iran, Kirgizstan, Egypt, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Turkey, Argentina, China and Japan.
Note: The exhibition is shown in the Nobel Peace Center’s education room on the second level, and from Tuesday to Friday it is available to the regular audience after 15.00 when the school groups are done for the day.
