Credo

In its quest to establish a tangible presence of John Peters Humphrey’s legacy in Hampton, the Foundation has worked towards establishing a John Peters Humphrey Interpretive Site in the centre of the town. “Credo”, an interactive human rights sculpture, is the focus, and is now located in the centre of Hampton on the historic Courthouse lawn. This major work has been created by Hooper Studios working with Darren Byers as a memorial to John Humphrey and his legacy. A series of interpretive panels have been strategically placed linking the Credo Sculpture Project, the old Humphrey homestead and John Humphrey’s gravesite. These panels feature Humphrey’s biography, his relationship to Hampton, the history of the United Nations and the story of the creation of the Declaration of Human Rights.
