Just in time for Human Rights Week, the Justice Centre Hong Kong is organizing the third-annual Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize at The Fringe Club, starting December 4.

The weeklong exhibition will showcase a collection of visual arts and photography that further difficult dialogues and spread awareness about human rights issues — from homelessness to the plight of refugees, LGBT rights to the Umbrella Movement.

The Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize saw submissions from over 100 artists hailing from every corner of the globe, which were eventually shortlisted by a panel of human rights and art experts.

From mixed media to paintings, the 19 shortlisted artists will have their powerful pieces displayed at The Fringe Club and available for bidding online. All revenue from the exhibition will go toward funding The Justice Centre’s work with forced migrants in Hong Kong.

The winners will be announced on December 10, which is also the UN’s International Human Rights Day, at a special awards ceremony, where the first-place prize will take home $30,000.

Free entry. December 4-10. The Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Road, Central. Bid in the charity auction online.
