Travelling exhibitions and activities

Since 1997, the exhibition Anne Frank - A History for Today has been presented in more than 60 locations. Hundreds of young people participated in the exhibition and in other projects including Free2choose. Almost 2,500 young people have visited the exhibition Reading & writing with Anne Frank.

The travelling exhibitions

Since 1997 the exhibition Anne Frank - A History for Today has travelled across Spain and been visited by thousands of people in places such as the Catholic University of Murcia, the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, the Barcelona City Council, the Sabino Arana Foundation in Vizcaya, and the Mapfre Guanarteme Foundation in the Canary Islands.

The exhibition Reading & writing with Anne Frank has been specifically designed for children between 9 and 15 years old and aims to promote reading and writing. For this reason, libraries are the ideal place to set up the exhibition: they are publicly accessible, and you are always surrounded by books and inspiration. Eight libraries in Madrid have already accommodated the exhibition, receiving nearly 2,500 students, and it is now touring a number of Spanish provinces.

Since Spain focuses on bilingual education, the exhibition texts are in English and in Spanish.

Free2choose and Free2choose-Create

In Spain, the Free2choose discussion workshops and, subsequently, the Free2choose-Create clips have led to debates on the conflicts between human rights that are relevant to the Spanish context. The issues on debate included bilingualism in education, as this is a hot topic in Spain, due to the variety of languages spoken, such as Castilian, Basque, Galician, or Catalan. Other debates zoomed in on Spanish traditions such as bullfighting, or other rights such as freedom of expression and the right to work versus the destruction of natural landscapes along the Spanish coasts. The film clips all provided an important forum for young people to discuss and become more aware of their surroundings.
