Iranian-born actress Nazanin Boniadi has had an impressive onscreen career, including leading roles in the Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and Homeland. But it’s her major role as a human rights advocate that has led to her most recent recognition. Over more than two decades, Boniadi has worked tirelessly to elevate the voices and struggles of Iranians citizens and activists, fighting for the country’s democracy and freedom – particularly for women and children. She has advocated at the highest levels, including at the UN Security Council, the US Senate Human Rights Caucus, and in the British Parliament. Boniadi has been selected as the recipient of the 2023 Sydney Peace Prize for ‘lending a powerful voice to support Iranian women and girls and their #WomanLifeFreedom movement, and for using a high-profile platform to promote freedom and justice in Iran’. At this unmissable event, Boniadi will deliver a stirring keynote lecture on democracy and women’s rights, followed by a Q&A. Nazanin Boniadi will be awarded the 2023 Sydney Peace Prize on 2 November at an event at the Sydney Town Hall. Tickets and information available here. Presented by the Sydney Peace Foundation and RMIT Culture.
