A good find.

Introduction to the United Nations

Joshua Daw's insight:

What is the purpose of the UN? The purpose is simple. The UN aims to bring all the nations of the world together, to move forward together; creating peace, justice and to protect the well-being of all humankind.

 

The 192 UN members meet at the General Assembly, each country, be it big or small will have a single vote to use in regards to a current world issue. A vote will be concluded which will then be influential in governmental decisions.http://www.un.org/en/ga/

Samuel Schultz's insight:

by Reg Mambazo 

 

this piece incorporates different styles of art, 

line gives it shape/detail within the art, leading you into the painting. thus giving shape shown by the sun & cloud in organic shapes, moving on to form the artist has use the organic shape which is visible. The space in the distance which is portrayed by the hills, giving it the look of an on running mountain range. The texture in the art are the details, shown through the hair on the dog. It looks as though the person is moving across the painting. This painting shows a lot of value because it is mainly shown through the darkness & lightness in shading.The last style is colour, which is shown through the striking feature of representation of Jesus. Although there are dark shading used with it's incorporation of light colours this makes the artwork vibrant.

matthew bill's insight:

in this piece angie clementine makes use of all 7 factors of visual art. the cool hues and natural shapes give it an almost mystical feel. the moon really pulls the viewers eye in being more vibrant and the only geometric shape. negative space causes this print fall off a mountain or cliffside into a magical night sky

vincent Van Gogh olive grove | Humanities Foundation | Scoop.it
Krystyn Bonney's insight:

The elements and principles are seen through out this piece. One of them is line, the lines in this piece give off movement , they vary from being thin and thick , thick  mostly when defining the shape of the tree trunks and branches, the lines are curved or irregular whichpromotes movement. The colours vary from dark/light blues various blends and shades of green and warm yellows. The. Colours creates a clam mood. The pale yellows in this piece are used to create a moon light lighting effect. The only negative space is in the top third which is represented as the night sky and the bottom third which is the grass but the middle third is the only positive space which is consumed by the olive trees. The focal point  is the front tree on the right with the pale blue highlights in the two upper branches. This piece is a very well organised piece as all the elements and principles blend well together .

Joshua Daw's insight:

The lines of this piece of art are thick and organic as they form the shapes of Rafiki. Simba too is made up solely of lines in bold, deep, red hues. The shapes of this piece are mostly organic, while the spray can held by Rafiki is made up of geometric shapes and lines. There is depth and space displayed in the picture as well, negative space within the lines of Simba along with the upper corner of the thick textures of the wall. As for depth and form, it is displayed by usage of Rafiki's tail, with the way it bends around his staff.

Multiculturalism - A position paper by the Acting Race Discrimination Commissioner (2007) | Australian Human Rights Commission | Humanities Foundation | Scoop.it
This is my fourth year as the Acting Race Discrimination Commissioner at the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC), a position I occupy in addition to that of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner. Over these past three or so years I have become concerned by what I observe to be an increasing ambivalence and at times, antagonism towards multiculturalism, both as a set of principles and as a government policy that frames social relations in Australia.
