About

As part of Experimentica Festival we have commissioned the project 'Anniversary ' an act of memory' which is a performance series in 60 acts, focusing on the importance and relevance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

It will include voluntary performers who will learn and recite from memory individual Articles from the Declaration, in their preferred language, making up the entire Declaration along with artist Monica Ross. The UDHR is translated into 385 languages and to date more than 400 people have taken part in this work in over 50 languages. Although the text remains the same, each voice gives its own context and we are encouraging participants to celebrate the diversity of language in Cardiff and Wales.

We are inviting groups and individuals to take part in this unique event at Chapter. Please join us for a workshop with Monica Ross at 7pm on Thursday 1 November, where she will talk about the project and outline how it will work at Chapter. The performance will take place at 12 noon on Saturday 24 November.

If you are interested in taking part in the performance please contact visual.arts@chapter.org for further information.
