The IBCR is pleased to invite you to participate in its anniversary fundraising event !

NOVEMBER 21, 2019 │ 6PM-10:30PM │ Galerie 203, 227 Notre-Dame St W, Montreal

2019 is a special year for the rights of the child, marking both the 30th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the 25th anniversary of our organisation. On this occasion, the International Bureau for Children’s Rights (IBCR) wishes to make a mark and organises a fundraising event, which will take the form of a review of the advances in the field over the past 30 years.

Intended to raise funds to support the IBCR in its projects in Quebec and around the world, the evening will continue with a cocktail and a fundraising auction, where works generously donated by renowned artists will be auctioned. Throughout the evening, you will also enjoy an exhibition on the 30th anniversary of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, retracing the key dates in child protection history. Singer Shaharah Sinclair and her musicians will also add a musical touch to this colourful evening.

This event is part of our week dedicated to children’s rights here and abroad, and aims to bring guests together around a common vision: to protect, defend and promote these rights around the world.

As a non-governmental, non-profit organisation, the IBCR needs you to be able to continue its work in support of children’s rights. All profits from this event will be used to fund projects in Quebec, Canada and internationally. By participating, you support our efforts and allow us to ensure the continuity of our actions to make children’s rights a reality.

The International Bureau for Children’s Rights team would like to thank all the artists, speakers and partners for their commitment to this event.

We look forward to seeing many of you there !
