About Us

art27 is a platform for artists, arts educators and arts organizations working with refugees and asylum seekers in Europe and beyond.

What we stand for

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.

We stand in solidarity with refugees and call on all artists and arts organizations to join us in promoting social inclusion and protecting vulnerable people through the arts.

art27 Map

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 your organisation endorses art27’s objectives, scroll down or click here to sign the manifesto and be listed in the art27 map. We plan to expand this map beyond Europe and welcome contributions from organizations worldwide.
