Youth for Human Rights European Arts Festival

England, August 11, 2005

Preparations are underway for the first European Human Rights Arts Festival, to be held in Cornwall, England on the 27th and 28th of August, organized by Youth for Human Rights International in conjunction with the Human Rights Department of the Church of Scientology International.

The purpose of the program is to teach youth about human rights and inspire them to promote human rights through the arts. The festival will feature a European youth summit and workshops delivered by experts in writing, poetry and fine arts.

Artists between the ages of 12 - 20 have entered their works in the festival categories of short stories, poetry and fine arts, and the festival will include a ceremony where the winning artists in each of these fields will be recognized.

The festival is being hosted in the medieval Tintagel Castle - said to be the birth place of the legendary King Arthur. It is at this very location that Lord Alfred Tennyson wrote "Idylls of the King," Elgar composed his second symphony and Turner painted. Known as "Camelot Castle" this hotel looks out over the majestic Tintagel island and the Atlantic.

To encourage creativity and artistic expression, owners John Mappin and Ted Stourton are sponsoring this festival in alignment with their policy that artists may stay at this hotel for free as part of their "artist in residence" program.
