The Tibidabo Amusement Park and UNICEF consolidate 5 years of alliance with the exhibition on the Right to Play
The purpose of this exhibition is to raise awareness on the importance of the right to play and to disseminate children’s rights
‘Play! You’ve got the right!’ This is the message of the UNICEF photography exhibition that is displayed in one of the rooms at the Tibidabo Amusement Park, which can be visited between Saturday 3 June and Sunday 17 September.
With this action, the Park and UNICEF Catalonia Committee consolidate five years of alliance with the aim of publicising children’s rights.
The purpose of the exhibition is to raise the awareness of visitors, young and old, on the importance of the Right to Play, contained in article 31 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child ‘every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts’. The exhibition contains photographs of children around the world playing, doing sports, cultural activities and resting.
The images are accompanied with messages to raise awareness on issues such as inclusion, the respect for traditional games and cultural diversity and equal conditions among children.
This is one more of the tasks of raising social awareness that the Tibidabo Amusement Park does throughout the year and through which it wants to disseminate messages of tolerance, solidarity and respect among all of its visitors, especially among the youngest ones.
Anna Folch, president of UNICEF Catalonia Committee and Rosa Ortiz, director of the Tibidabo Amusement Park, were in charge of inaugurating this exhibition on 28 May, on the International Day of the Right to Play.
