Artistic Freedom Center works towards creating a freer world by researching and reporting on freedom of expression violations.
In partnership with Lawyers without Borders, AFC will produce White Papers on countries who unfairly persecute artists and unduly censor access to independent art. We will highlight specific instances of abuses as well as examine the legal protections granted to citizens. The reports will bring international attention and leverage to help those artists under attack by authoritarian regimes.
AFC informs and educates policymakers on the need for and societal benefits of safeguarding artistic freedom. AFC supports efforts to advocate against undue censorship and persecution of artists in local, national, and international forums.
