Contribute to Jelili Atiku's Performance

Jelili Atiku is focusing his project on article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person”. In the prevailing circumstances, everywhere, we see hate crimes, shooting rampage and homicides against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community; we see attacks on civil, political, social, economic, religious and cultural rights and freedoms.

For his summit performance on April 29, he wants the community to think about this and respond. He will take the responses and place them in over 400 glass bottles, which he will then wear and process down the Midway in a meditative processional performance.

We invite you to read the letter he has prepared and respond to his question. Please send your responses to logancenter@uchicago.edu.
