The Human Rights Makerlab will take place from 6-10th of June during the DMY.

It aims to bring together diverse interest groups to explore the topic of Human Rights through actions, conversations and presentations.

Our objective is to broaden awareness of the topic, and create opportunities for sharing technology to assist people in enabling their Human Rights – everything from shared language and symbolism, to functional easy to build tools.
