    This year’s event is FREE, completely online, and being planned by youth for youth. You will hear about some of the important human rights issues Amnesty members and others are working on around the world, acquire skills that take your activism to new levels, and meet youth who, like you, are inspired and motivated to make a difference.

    60 Candles for 60 Years

    Amnesty International’s iconic candle-and-barbed-wire logo is recognized around the world. And this year Amnesty and its candle turn 60. Sadly, we can’t gather to mark the occasion, except online. So that’s where this special 60th anniversary art exhibition will be located.

    We invite all artists to submit a high resolution photo of an original artwork or photo that in some way presents or represents a candle that we can bring together with 59 others in an online exhibition we’re calling 60 Candles for 60 Years.
