UNICEF at the musée du quai Branly

The rights of the child are 20 years old!

From Friday, November 20 to Sunday, November 22

To celebrate the 20 years of the International Convention of Rights of the Child ratified by 193 countries around the world, UNICEF and the musée du quai Branly have come together to allow the public to better understand rights as fundamental as those of identity, health, education or even protection, thanks to a routing within the museum illustrated by a pedagogic pamphlet, as well as workshops, a reading, and a film.
