Rights of the Child

Rights of the Child is a radio art piece commissioned by Réseaux des Arts Médiatiques for a 45 minute webcast in December 2009 and has since been adapted into a 15 minute version. The piece is structured around the UN Convention for the Rights of the Child. The idea of the piece originated in a residency the composer did with Theatre Direct Canada at Kent Senior Public School in Toronto called Letters to Africa. The residency took inspiration from the book Our Stories, Our Songs: African Children Talk About AIDS by Deborah Ellis.
