A FILM-making workshop is being held for children and teenagers in London’s East End today (Monday) on human rights.

Youngsters aged 11 to 19 are being invited by the Equality & Human Rights Commission to the free masterclass’ at Bethnal Green’s Rich Mix arts centre to support film entries as a new category in this year’s Young Brits At Art awards.

They will learn about equality and human rights issues and how to express their views through the camera.

Commission Deputy-Chair Baroness Margaret Prosser said: “We want to give youngsters a platform to show how they picture a world where inequality and discrimination don’t exist. They can help paint a future built on fairness and respect.”

The four-hour workshop at the centre in Bethnal Green Road begins at 12 noon.

The Commission’s recent inquiry’ into how human rights work in Britain revealed 84 per cent of the public want their rights enshrined in law to create a fairer society.
