Arts Rights Justice is a working group set up to encourage greater understanding in public spheres of the interaction between culture and human rights in upholding democratic principles.
The members of the working group wish to improve compliance with human rights provisions relating to culture and freedom to speech and recently they have published a Toolkit on Artists’ rights
WHY THIS TOOLKIT ?
• To build capacity within the arts and culture sector, providing knowledge on how artists can exercise their rights, and on how to support our collaborative partners
• To support and encourage arts organisations and cultural workers in informing and encouraging their colleagues and members to protect, defend and support artists and cultural operators everywhere
• To encourage better collaboration between the arts, culture, free speech and the human rights sectors .
