Right Now Radio’s Evelyn Tadros looks at human rights projects and events coming up, particularly focusing on those that give voice to those marginalised, disadvantaged or vulnerable.

PILCH’s In the Public Eye is six personal accounts of what it’s like to be homeless and caught up in the fine system.

Somebodys Daughter Theatre Company works with women in prison and post release and marginalised young people, using arts ‘as a driver to break intergenerational cycles of abuse, addiction and institutionalisation of the most disenfranchised in society’.

And Ev’s excited about the Melbourne Festival, and looks at some of the human rights related events coming up as a part of that festival in October.
