At CASE Art Fund, we firmly believe every child deserves a childhood, as defined by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. I MATTER is a photographic exhibition of children throughout the world holding hand-written signs in their native language, stating I MATTER. As more and more children are faced with insecurity, we seek to raise awareness about children’s human rights.

The images are taken by parents, guardians, and photographers from around the world. 


CASE Art Fund is seeking people who would like to contribute to this important project. I MATTER is an ongoing exhibition and will continue until all children receive the basic human right to an education.

If you would like to photograph children in your area or

host a panel discussion about this important topic.

I MATTER is supported in part by

The Weinberg/Newton Family Foundation
