Image shown: Artwork by Amy Zhao from the exhibition 'Rights in their Eyes' on Hospital Street at Tallaght University Hospital. The Ombudsman for Children’s Office invited 7 winners from the 2017 Texaco Children’s Art competition to choose a right from the UNCRC and create a new piece of art expressing their views on what it is like to be a child or young adult growing up in Ireland today. Shown alongside these images are self-portraits created by young patients in response to 'Rights in their Eyes'.

The exhibitions aim to raise awareness of children’s rights and offer an opportunity for children and young people to express their views on relevant issues and concerns in a creative and imaginative way.  Read More
