Defending Artistic Expression in Europe
Artistic Freedom Europe
Freedom of artistic expression is continuously challenged around the world, including in Europe. Contrary to conventional belief, the freedom and right to perform, facilitate and enjoy art and culture freely in Europe is rapidly closing as right-wing populism rises and civil society spaces shrink. Freemuse has now presence in Brussels as part of our effort to raise the profile of artistic freedom in Europe supported by Swedish Postcode Foundation. Freemuse has started a European focused project that conducts research, advocacy and campaigning beginning with the European 2019 Election as a key opportunity to influence changes in laws, policies and practices.
