Freemuse and Culture Action Europe brought together policy and decision makers and representatives from the arts community for a conference on freedom of artistic expression at the European Parliament in Brussels. The event was based on Freemuse’s The State of Artistic Freedom report 2018, which exposes how freedom of expression of artists and art communities are being violated in Europe at an alarming scale.

The event was hosted by Member of the European Parliament Julie Ward (S&D). Other speakers included: President of EESC Luca Jahier; Executive Director of Freemuse Srirak Plipat; curator of The Beast and the Sovereign Iris Dressler; Vladan Joler, Social media battlefield, arrests & detentions; Culture Action Europe  board member Yamam Al-Zubaidi; Sarah Sommer from Network of European Foundations; Director of Liaison Office in Brussels and Representative to the European Institutions at UNESCO Paolo Fontani; and Secretary General of Culture Action Europe Tere Badia.
