THE Slovenian embassy in O’Malley is inviting the public to an open day dedicated to the reading of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Between 10am and 4pm, on Wednesday, September 6, the embassy is joining the initiative of the Berlin International Literature Festival, which each year organises a worldwide reading of a text that has a special relevance to the times we live in. This year the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was chosen.
It has been translated into more than 500 languages and can be read at the open day in any language. Translations can be found at ohchr.org/EN/UDHR/Pages/SearchByLang.aspx
In addition to reading a part of the declaration, participants are at liberty to express their feelings by making comments, reading a poem or playing a song. Light refreshments will be available throughout the day.
The event will be live streamed to join others around the world participating in the initiative.
RSVP is not essential but an email to email@example.com or a call to 6290 0000 would be appreciated. The Slovenian embassy is at 26 Akame Circuit, O’Malley.
