The label ‘refugee’ does injustice to who we are. art27 offers the arts as a route to honor the diversity and complexity of people’s identities
art27 is a platform for artists & arts organizations that stands for the fundamental right of all human beings to experience and engage with culture, to develop their creativity and to express both the unique identity of each individual and the shared humanity of all
While natural catastrophes, climate change and poverty also cause people to flee, the current refugee situation has largely been caused by wars. art27 opposes war and stands in solidarity with those forced to flee from wars
Article 27: Everyone has the right to freely participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.
The arts has a vital role to play in creating more inclusive, culturally diverse societies.
Everyone has a right to experience the arts, develop their creativity, express their unique identity and engage in our shared humanity.

art27 maintains a map of its members and their participatory arts projects
This map is a living visualization of the projects that currently make up the art27 network. Each project works to counter fear and xenophobia and promote social inclusion through participatory art projects, arts education, community arts initiatives, exhibits, installations and performances.
We hope for this map to be a resource to the community and that it will continue to grow with more organizations and projects, across Europe and beyond, that are involved in this work. If you or your organization agree with our goals and would like to be part of our network, scroll down to be listed in the art27 map. We plan to expand this map beyond Europe and welcome contributions from organizations worldwide.
