The exhibition, "El Arte Con Los Derechos Humanos", features 30 pieces of art from different artists, who all had to choose an article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and create their artwork based on it.
Emma's choice was Justice, based on the Declaration's 7th article.
"I chose this because I think that in some way it comprises the essence of Human Rights," says Emma. "Everyone has the same opportunities, and everybody can have the same education. It is just that we all can be the same."
The works of art by sculptors, photographers, water colour and collage artists and more aim to explore and inform people people about the words and images of human rights.

"There were plenty of people at the opening," says Emma, who received plenty of prase for her work on the night, which was both flattering and embarrassing - like many artists, she's a modest about her work!
The exhibition, orgnaised by Amnesty International and local art organisation Espejo de Alicante (EDA) was opened by Vicente Pertegás, co-ordinator of Amnesty International, Consuelo Giner, president of the EDA. (If you're curious, the EDA blog, in Spanish, has a full list of artists involved here - be aware the blog is pretty sluggish to view, there seems to be some animation slowing down loading time).
"We got lots of signatures for several human rights issues," she adds. "I'm very happy of participating in this."
