Global Action Network – Campaign Coordinator
The Global Action Network is a long-term project designed to enhance collaboration between stakeholders in the field to better advocate for artistic freedom and assist artists, including those at risk by creating a campaign community. Join us to become a campaign coordinator where you can coordinate and execute campaigns, obtain firsthand information on campaign cases, organise events related to the campaign and so much more.
Are you an artist, ally, human rights activist or professional who stands to defend and support the right to artistic freedom. This free membership could include joining viral social media campaigns, signing petitions to affect policy and take part in discussions regarding the state of artistic freedom globally.
Further to being privy to the actions and opportunities listed for Supporting Members, paying members have the right to vote at the General Assembly, which is held every third year. This includes the ability to nominate the Executive Committee. 15 Euros is donated annually.
Freemuse depends on our network to report incidents of artistic freedom violations, including persecuted and imprisoned artists, instances of censorship, legislation changes making it difficult for people to express themselves artistically, as well as positive incidents in societies that open up their artistic freedom views and laws.
Freemuse is also interested in publishing articles, academic papers or any other information regarding artistic freedom, and is always looking for good freelance journalists and writers to dive deeper into issues of artistic freedom around the world.
If you have an incident to report, some material you would like to submit, or are a freelance journalist/writer interested in contributing to Freemuse’s content, please contact Freemuse (firstname.lastname@example.org)
