About Courage, Compassion and Human Rights


Starting with November, the exhibition WE HAVE A DREAM – about Courage, Compassion and Human Rights will be presented in the temporary exhibition space of the Ostrobothnian Museum.

How much are you prepared to fight for your rights and the rights of others? Some people are prepared to risk their lives for their rights and dreams. WE HAVE A DREAM is not about saints or superheroes – nobody here is infallible. The exhibition highlights people who have left their comfort zones and decided to make a change.

The exhibition consists of about one hundred portraits and stories linked to them. The initiators Albert Wiking and Oscar Edlund have collected voices from all over the world, voices that tell about taking action against injustice and the fact that we can really make a difference. Wiking is the photographer behind the portraits and Edlund has interviewed the people in the photographs. Daniel Rydn has thereafter compiled the stories.

More than hundred activists, Nobel Peace Prize laureates, artists, writers, and politicians have chosen to participate in We have a Dream in order to inspire others to accomplish their dreams and visions. Unknown youngsters such as Ida Engblom and Abbas Ahmadi stand side by side with icons like the Dalai Lama, Malala Yousafzai, Ai Weiwei, Pussy Riot, Greta Thunberg, Patti Smith. Here, all voices are equally valuable.

Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head for fighting for girls right to education in Pakistan. Malala was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her struggle. For Ida Engblom in Sweden, school became a nightmare of bullying and fear. Ida is passionate about helping both those who are bullied and those who bully them. Ida and Malala both have a dream, and they are both willing to stand up for their convictions.

This exhibition celebrates the 25th anniversary of Photo Gallery Ibis. The exhibition is produced by We Have A Dream, in collaboration with UpOnWalls, Photo Gallery Ibis, Vaasa City Museums and Visit Vaasa.
