In bed with Simavi & Human Rights Tattoo

This July, the city of Amsterdam will host the 22nd International AIDS conference under the theme “Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges”, drawing attention to the need of rights-based approaches especially to reach key populations in regions where epidemics are growing.

Held on the sidelines of the AIDS Conference, an interactive event hosted by Simavi & Human Rights Tattoo on July 25th 2018 will unite people and organizations that care about Human Rights, and specifically Sexual and Reproductive Rights (SRHR). Simavi & Human Rights Tattoo believe that SRHR are universal human rights that should be respected, protected and fulfilled.

We invite you in bed with Simavi & Human Rights Tattoo at A’DAM&CO. Amsterdam, where we will take you to new heights. With a diverse panel discussing sexual rights & sexual freedom with a focus on women & girls living with/ affected by HIV/AIDS. And where Human Rights Tattoo will tattoo the letters of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on the spot on the body of pre-selected nominees.

The program will include: 

  • A diverse panel discussion bringing you stories and insights from Africa and Asia. As a preview; we have Fita Rizki Utami from Indonesia, who will share her life story and work with youth and SRHR with you.
    This part of the programme will take place from 14.00-16.30 pm
  • An ongoing tattoo session; be quick if you want to reserve a spot, or if you want to nominate someone who you think deserves this tattoo!
    This part of the programme will take place from 14.00-22.00 pm
