Human Rights in the Picture is a non-profit human rights organisation with its legal seat in the Hague: the City of Peace and Justice.

The foundation was founded on 15 May 2013 by Jan de Koning and Nadja Houben with the aim of using audio-visual art to expose human rights violations, to support those involved and to contribute to change. The organisation’s team and advisory board are dedicated human rights experts and passionate about our mission.

Strengthened by a global hub of filmmakers, visual artists, photographers, translators, editors, educators, human rights defenders, lawyers, NGOs, diplomats and students, the small team operates as a network organisation with minimal overheads thanks to its structure.
