Exhibition: Play a role - an exhibition about making a difference.
PLAY A ROLE.
An exhibition about making a difference. About those who intervene and those who don’t
Those who walk away. Those who don’t speak up. Those who legitimize abuse by not intervening. Onlookers have been of great importance in many historical events but did they have an opportunity to act and what would history have looked like if they had intervened? Despite their significance, observers play an inconspicuous role in history books.
In history and today, people are faced with choices that determine whether they will be an observer. A number of factors influence the choices we make. While most of us would like to act, only a few of us actually choose to intervene. Why is that? What psychological factors form the basis of our actions?
The exhibition also tells another story. The story of those who refuse to be onlookers and show that it is possible to make a different choice. A choice for humanity and civil courage.
What you choose does matter.
