Designers Against Tibetan Abuse (on sale Feb 2nd 2009) is the first project by Designers Against Human Rights Abuse. Founded by Rishi Sodha in the summer of 2008, a non-profit organisation, DAHRA exists to promote and raise awareness amongst those involved in the creative industry of their social, political and ethical responsibilities as well as to raise awareness of different instances of Human Rights Abuse.
As such the first project focuses on Tibetan Rights and is a combination of a book, a limited edition Si Scott silk screen poster and an exhibition in London in the Summer of 2009.
52 creatives from around the world all contributed pieces focusing on different aspects of Tibetan Rights forming this inspiring book, available for £20 delivered worldwide. All proceeds go to the Tibet Relief Fund, who are also distributing the book, and all the money goes directly to them with DAHRA not handling it at any time
