A Conversation with Hannah Rose Thomas

January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a conversation between Hannah Rose Thomas, artist and human rights activist, and Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein, president and CEO of the International Peace Institute (IPI) and former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. Their conversation will center around Hannah’s work exploring war and injustice, as well as humanity, dignity, and resilience.
This conversation comes towards the end of a weeks-long exhibition of artworks by artist and human rights activist Hannah Rose Thomas featured in the new book, Tears of Gold.
Her paintings depict Yezidi women who escaped ISIS captivity, Rohingya women who fled unsafe conditions in Myanmar, and Nigerian women who survived Boko Haram violence. Alongside their portraits, the book tells the women’s stories providing a testimony to their humanity and resilience in the face of adversity.
