ARTillery Youth Arts Festival is a volunteer project of Amnesty International that is run by youth activists to inspire young people to take action on human rights issues through the arts. ARTillery challenges local artists to produce original artwork that responds to Amnesty International's human rights campaigns. The result is unique, exciting events all over the country, where young people use ART as their ARTillery to defend human rights.
ARTillery is not your average youth festival. There’s no fairy floss, no overpriced rides, no officials giving a spiel about how youth are the ‘voice of tomorrow’. The festival is about young, local artists pushing the boundaries of their art forms to explore human rights issues.
