The Mammalian Protocol for Collaborating with Children2011
by Darren O'Donnell
Mammalian Diving Reflex has developed a rights-based approach to artistic collaborations with children, using the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, The Implementation Handbook for the Convention on the Rights of the Child, The Universal Declaration on Human Rights, The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and The Declaration of the Child!s Right to Play as primary resources upon which we base our methodology. Using the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as framework, in particular, Articles 5, 12, 13, 15, 19, 29, 30, 31, 32 and 36 the company has developed specific protocols for dealing with common situations when collaborating with children and the institutions in which children are most commonly engaged including the family, schools, community and cultural centers and arts organizations.
