Event 19

Human (Banners, Segovia for) rights

Venue: Acueducto de Segovia, Plaza Mayor & Catedral de Segovia

Popular action of the NGO AIDA to generate a community experience of meeting tradition and modernity through art and crafts, for the dissemination of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

30 horsepeople and 100 voluntary pedestrians will walk through the streets of the historic centre of the city, carrying 90 banners made ad-hoc, made by Marta Troya, a visual artist from Segovia, Angel Peris, a graphic artist, and Panamá Diaz, a photography artist, with images refering to the key words of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, combined with images of cooperation projects and people who benefit from these AIDA projects and other NGOs, along with original pieces from the three creators.

Accompanied by the music of the traditional Segovian dulzainas, the procession will go through the streets of Segovia from the Aqueduct to the Plaza Mayor, at noon, in the style of the traditional ceremonies for the celebration of great deeds, with a choreographed finale in the square itself, in which the participating volunteers will place the banners in such a way that they form a triple artistic installation, in the open air, which will remain until nightfall, to be later exhibited in the Cathedral's retrochoir.
