Human Rights and Creativity

Conference – Symposium - Forum

5-9 December 2023 | Luxembourg

The conference explores creative approaches for historical-political & human rights education for young people and multipliers (theatre, football, biographies, music,...).

The memorial and educational centre Cinqfontaines cooperates with the National Agency to implement this training.

Who are we?

The Cinqfontaines Centre is located on the site of the former monastery in Cinqfontaines, near Troisvierges. Priests of the Sacred-Heart-Order lived here from 1904 to 2021. During the Second World War, the site was used by the National Socialists as a place of internment for Jews living in Luxembourg. Around 300 Jews, who had previously been expelled from their homes, were interned in the monastery before being deported to Eastern Europe. Today, Cinqfontaines is a central place of remembrance for the Jewish community in Luxembourg.  Since 2022, the former monastery Cinqfontaines is a memorial and educational centre with a diverse programme offered by the Service national de la jeunesse (SNJ) and the Zentrum fir politesch Bildung (ZpB) based on the following themes: “Remembrance of the victims of the Shoah”, “Raising awareness of anti-Semitism and racism” and “Fostering democracy and human rights.”

What to expect from the activity?

Against the background of the fact that contemporary witnesses disappear and the history of the Second World War fades, the conference “human rights and creativity” explores creative approaches that focus on the access to historical-political and human rights education for young people and their multipliers. The activity incorporates best practices and examples from experts on different topics such as documentary theatre, football and history, biographies, a “memory walk” and ostracised music.

Who is the activity for?

  • Youth education centres with activities on human rights education, historical-political education and/or civic education
  • Memorial sites with educational offers
  • Memorial sites linked with youth educational centres

What are your main objectives?

  • To reflect and summarize the current situation and the existing challenges of historical-political education and human rights education in participating institutions; especially on the question of how to get access to young people and youth workers
  • To share and exchange best practices, learn about (new) approaches and inputs
  • To establish links between different stakeholders; especially between youth institutions and memorial sites
  • To encourage the use of new creative methods and formats (Think outside the box)

What is the expected outcome?

  • The creation of a network and an active exchange between youth education centres and memorial sites
  • To have at least one (new) project approach to work with and first concept ideas to realize it
  • The creation of a toolbox that can be used in the centres to create (new) offers
