Call for editor & writers: Report on the effects of fundamentalism and extremism on artistic freedom

Freemuse is seeking an experienced editor and 3-4 writers for the production of a report on the effects of fundamentalism and extremism on the enjoyment of the right to artistic freedom of expression.

Fundamentalism and extremism has affected and damaged cultural industries and the right to artistic freedom on several continents. In her 2016 report, UN Special Rapporteur in the field of cultural rights Karima Bennoune stated that the intentional destruction of cultural heritage is a human rights issue and notes that cultural heritage is not limited to tangible objects like buildings or ruins, but applies to intangible works that include works of artistic expression as well.

As part of Freemuse’s efforts to defend artists’ and audiences’ right to artistic freedom of expression, the organization plans to publish a substantial global report on the issue with strong and actionable recommendations to governments, international institutions and civil society, including the artistic community.
