      The Voices of Children: A Documentary Screening and Dialogue on Children's Rights

      Children have the right to be heard. Through language, drawings,
      movement, and play, children strive to communicate their beliefs,
      understandings, and needs. But often children’s experiences are
      discounted, their contributions to society minimized, and their voices
      silenced. If we listen to children’s ideas and closely observe their
      actions, what can we learn of their views about their world?
      Please join us for the Seattle premier of the groundbreaking short
      documentary film, Voices of Children, and engage in discussion with
      one of the film’s creators, John Nimmo. This documentary aims to
      expand on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child by advocating
      for a more inclusive view of children’s rights, from the perspective of
      the children themselves. An international team of educators and
      filmmakers journeyed to sites in five countries, sparking conversations
      about “rights,” and then stepped back and invited the children to speak
      for themselves.
      Following the screening, participants will hear insights into the process
      and vision of this project, and join a dialogue about “listening” to
      children across cultural contexts. Professionals from all fields –
      including educators, civic leaders, religious leaders, activists, and
      parents – are invited to come together for this discussion. Together we
      can explore our image of children, and how we can better listen to and
      represent children, to support human rights and sustain a more just
      society.
