Culture Action Europe, Freemuse and Arts Rights Justice EU Working Group will run a session at Fundamental Rights Forum in Vienna. Debate entitled “Arts in troubled times: protecting, promoting and empowering Europe’s civil society” will take place on the 25th of September at 14:00.
Creativity and freedom of (artistic) expression are at risk due to challenges to civil society space in Europe. Arts and culture foster a strong sense of belonging. Improving the monitoring of artistic freedom is crucial for the wellbeing of people and for the creation of a more inclusive society. This session will share knowledge and practices to step up advocacy initiatives to better protect the artistic space and artistic freedom as a human right.
Fundamental Rights Forum is organised by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). Find more about the event here.
