Children's Voices

Children's Voices

This event is now in the past.

See through the eyes of children as they explore their human rights.

Children’s Voices is a collection of drawings, painting and linocuts made by children, expressing their own understanding and views of their human rights.

From the value they place on family life and education, to their concerns about poverty, homelessness, war and abuse, these powerful artworks present an inspiring insight into how children view their rights and responsibilities as citizens.

The artworks were originally created in 1997 for the First Australasian Conference on the Rights of the Child and are now held at State Library of Queensland as part of the Dr Barbara Piscitelli AM Children’s Art Archive.

Visitors are encouraged to leave a comment or create your own artwork, reflecting on the exhibition and what the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child means to you.

Children’s Voices is presented by State Library of Queensland with support from the Commission for Children and Young People and Child Guardian.
