Human Rights

A Sculpture Park


A unique sculpture park

The artists Sara.H and DeLaPerouze will convert the Universal Declaration of Human Rights into a sculpture park. They will strive to make it real to as many people as possible by conceptualizing each article so that it is quickly perceived by visitors of all kinds, including the visually impaired or blind.
The project is fully aligned with the requirements of article 30 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, effective since 2008. It matches particularly in terms of motor, sensory and intellectual accessibility, greatly promoting the autonomy of the beneficiaries.

Our mission

The association Voir c'est Toucher supports the creation of the Human Rights Park in order to raise awareness of fundamental human rights among all members of society by offering a tactile and sensory experience through the development of a sculpture park.
The works intended to be touched focus on universal social issues and valuable lessons using clear and simple language, as well as in Braille.
The sculpture park will create a friendly environment that encourages integration, communication and inter-community exchange.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a landmark document in history. Written by representatives of various legal and cultural circles around the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948 as a common standard of achievement for all people and nations.
For the first time, fundamental human rights are universally protected. While almost everyone seems to know about fundamental human rights, few people realize the impact of its thirty articles. These rights lay the foundation for freedom, justice and peace in the world and have been translated into more than 500 languages.
