Inking Brains: A Tale of Art, Freedom, and Expression

At the Al Balad Theater, a group of aspiring digital artists came together for a unique journey that would not only test their creative boundaries but also challenge their understanding of human rights. Among these artists were Layan Abu Atia and Aram, two talented individuals whose stories serve as a testament to the power of art in shedding light on the fundamental principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 


Layan Abu Atia, 20 years old, a Multimedia – Visual Arts student at the University of Jordan, embarked on this creative adventure with a passion for digital art and a deep desire to explore the connection between art and human rights. With graduation on the horizon, Layan saw this workshop as a chance to make a meaningful impact on society through her art.  


During the workshop, Layan partnered with a fellow participant named Leeyan Ghonajoq, 21 years old, and together, they embarked on a project titled “Inking Brains.” This project aimed to explore the right to free expression, a cornerstone of human rights, along with the right to think critically and quality education. Their artwork revolved around the concept of the brain as the starting point for expression, the epicenter of thought, and the catalyst for speech.
