FREEMUSE – THE WORLD FORUM ON MUSIC AND CENSORSHIP is an independent international membership organisation advocating and defending freedom of expression for musicians and composers worldwide.
UN SPECIAL CONSULTATIVE STATUS
The alarmingly widespread nature of censorship of music prompted the conference attendees to initiate the creation of a new organisation, Freemuse. Its guidelines are the principles outlined in the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights as they apply specifically to musicians and composers. The Freemuse Secretariat was established in August 2000.
Over the years Freemuse has received funding from amongst others: The Sigrid Rausing Trust, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), Roskilde Festival Charity Society, Swedish Postcode Lottery Culture Foundation, SafeMuse, Björn Afzelius International Culture Foundation (BAIK), Swedish Special Initiative for Democratisation and Freedom of Expression and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
