To celebrate European Diversity Month in May, the Estonian Human Rights Centre will open a street photography exhibition of generational diversity on Tuesday, May 3, in cooperation with MTÜ Eesti Tänavafotograafia and Telliskivi Creative City. The exhibition will remain open till May 31 at the Three Trees Gallery in the courtyard of Telliskivi Creative City.
The authors of the photos are Estonian street photographers. At the exhibition, you can also read the thoughts of Estonian people about their diverse life in both Estonian and English. In addition, there will be a virtual tour of the exhibition.
Welcome to the exhibition opening on May 3 at 6 pm! First, Marleen Armei from the Human Rights Centre and the Swedish ambassador Ingrid Tersman will say a few words and then Airi Leon, the head of MTÜ Eesti Tänavafotograafia, will introduce the exhibition.
Additionally, in the following three weeks in May, tours will take place with different guides who introduce the exhibition, the generational diversity and the bridges between age groups from their own perspective.
The exhibition is part of the celebration of European Diversity Month in Estonia. The theme of this year’s Diversity Month is “building bridges”, which focuses on finding common ground between different generations and communities. Diversity Months and Day in Estonia are organised by the Estonian Human Rights Centre in cooperation with the Estonian Diversity Charter organisations. More information: www.mitmekesisus.ee
The exhibition is funded by the Embassy of Sweden in Tallinn, the European Union and the Ministry of Social Affairs.

It is important to protect everyone’s human rights, because it helps to keep stability and peace in the society. There are many challenges for protection of human rights in Estonia: intolerance has really come out of the closet. Bad things happen when good people are too passive, but together we can make a change.
