Resumé:
Afrika kontakt vil i samarbejde med Foundation for Socio-Economic Justice (FSEJ), formidle menneskerettigheder i Swaziland ved hjælp af kunst og kultur. Dette gøres med henblik på at formidle menneskerettigheder til den generelle befolkning i Swaziland, samt at holde de lokale såvel som de nationale autoriteter ansvarlige i forhold til håndhævelsen af menneskerettighederne. Baggrunden for dette projekt er, at der i Swaziland sker regelmæssige brud på menneskerettighederne, samt at der som resultat af dette er foretaget fængslinger af ledende dele af oppositionen til monarkiet. Dette nødvendiggør alternative formidlingsmetoder, hvilket også er baggrunden for at inddrage kunst og kultur for på den måde at skabe en større accept, fra de ledende autoriteter i forbindelse med formidlingen af menneskerettigheder.
