Session Abstract

The Raise Three Fingers (RTF) campaign began as a response to the coup and the military’s suppression of creative thought and expression. Artists across the globe have offered their interpretations of the now-famous three-finger salute, first seen in the book and film The Hunger Games, and since taken up by activists in countries across Southeast Asia as a show of solidarity against authoritarian governments that are failing to provide their populations with basic rights and protections.

Currently over 1500 artists across 45 countries have shown their support by submitting a three finger salute and the number increases every day.  Besides the online campaign, exhibitions, events and media collaborations are currently being organized across the world to amplify awareness about what’s happening in Myanmar and support the global fight for freedom, democracy and human rights. The solidarity expressed by people around the world through beautiful art pieces is a way to bring hope to the people of Myanmar and make them feel supported and listened to.

Join in & learn more about the use of art in collective action. And how a theme such as solidarity can influence positive narratives, spread messages of hope and continue to highlight the unfolding human rights and humanitarian crises happening in Myanmar. We will also share ways of how you can support or become involved in the campaign.
