Human Rights film evening(March 2011)

On 17 March 2011 a human rights film evening was held in the Ilott Theatre. There were screenings and discussions on two films: Courage Unfolds - Living the Principles and Assume Nothing.

Courage Unfolds - Living the Principles seeks to educate communities, mainly in Asia, about the Yogyakarta Principles and the promotion of human rights. Filmmaker and keynote speaker Grace Poore inspires LGBTI people to fight homophobia and transphobia.

Assume Nothing focuses on the art and performances of Rebecca Swan and four other "alternative" gender artists. Director Kirsty MacDonald poses the questions "What if 'male' and 'female' are not the only options? How do other genders express themselves through art?".
