What we stand for
We launch ART27 as a platform to raise voices through the arts for social inclusion, for protection of the vulnerable and for honoring our culturally diverse societies.
We stand in solidarity with refugee artists, and dedicate our art to further the social inclusion of newcomers and other vulnerable people in our diverse societies.
We call on all artists and arts organizations to join us in solidarity with refugees and other vulnerable people, and to support tolerance, openness, inclusion, and the fundamental rights of every person as expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
What we do
- ART27 organizes gatherings of socially engaged artists and arts organizations in Europe, to share expertise and to forge collaborations in promotion of social inclusion.
- ART27 collects and openly shares resources and knowledge among all artists, arts organizations and arts projects wishing to contribute to a welcoming, inclusive Europe.
- ART27 seeks to impact the public narrative on war, refugees and migration. We aim to counter fear and xenophobia and promote social inclusion through participatory art projects, arts education, community arts initiatives, exhibits, installations and performances.
