PlayforRights is a non-profit organization which is committed to human rights, peacebuilding and arts. The organization is active in Switzerland and has its headquarters in Basel. We are however also active in other European countries and in South America. The activities of PlayforRights include peace education, peace research, activism and a broad spectrum of art performances. The organization furthermore raises awareness for human rights and advocates for the improvement of human rights issues. Lastly, the organization empowers especially youth and children by giving them access to training, expertise and support.
PlayforRights strongly believes that a peaceful future and a just society can be created by building a human web of relations where people from different expertise and background go through similar experiences and yet give their own unique expression and meaning to that experience by embracing diversity, co-existence and commonalities instead of differences.
Peace is not just the absence of war, but the full development of the human personality based on values, needs, dignity and capacities that, is our belief, it shall be explored also by means of the arts.
Rather than keep focusing on the negative aspect of peace (absence of war), through PlayforRights is our intention to explore the opposite (positive peace) by embracing a humanistic and artistic experience that has the potential to guide civil society to de-escalate conflicts preventing violence at the time that the underlying conflict is resolved.
