ART Without Borders is committed to preserving and promoting artists’ rights in the world. Art Without Borders' members believe that artists are often the first victims of human rights violations or abuse, forcing them to leave everything behind and to become refugees due to their faith, political stance, ethnicity or artistic activity. Art Without Borders wants to participate in the building of a better world, offering to artist refugees and individuals advocating for artists’ rights the support of an exchange network and the sponsorship of events.
