Artists at Risk Connection for artists facing oppression, persecution, arrest, and violence
Artists at Risk Connection (ARC) is an online collaboration of more than 500 global organizations that provide life-saving resources to artists worldwide who face oppression, persecution, arrest, and violence for their creative work.
Artists at Risk Connection is committed to
- improving access to resources for artists at risk
- enhancing connections among supporters of artistic freedom
- raising awareness about artistic freedom
We believe that artists benefit from collaboration and also from better visibility for themselves and the organizations that serve them.
Autocratic regimes fear artists because they express cultural identity, advance new ideas, promote dialogue, and bear witness to inhumanity.
Artistic freedom is an indicator of a healthy and free society.
ARC serves artists of all disciplines: visual artists, musicians, filmmakers, performance artists, writers, and other individuals who produce significant creative output in any medium.
ARC is a collaborative project led by PEN America, which has been committed to protecting open expression in the United States and worldwide since 1922. PEN America, a champion of the freedom to write, stands at the intersection of literature and human rights. It is the largest of more than 140 centers of PEN International.
