Event description

Description

Conceived by artist and academic Lois Weaver, who uses the familiar to get people to talk about what is troubling and unfamiliar, the Care Cafe is a new call to conversation in an era in which human rights are under threat.

This Care Cafe will be supported by guest curators, who will each select an object from the Library’s collection to encourage reflection upon ‘care and human rights’. Guest curators include Andrea Durbach, Director of the Australian Human Rights Centre, and Bonney Djuric, Project Director, Parramatta Female Factory Precinct Memory Project and former Parragirl.

The Care Café takes on the look and feel of a traditional café whilst keeping care and inclusion as its core ethos.

The Care Café is a developing, open-source protocol. Information can be found at the Care Cafe Facebook page.

Presented as part of The Big Anxiety in association with The Australian Centre for Human Rights. Supported by The Wellcome Trust.
