ArtWorks for Freedom

ArtWorks for Freedom is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to use the power of art in the fight against modern slavery and human trafficking. We seek to transform public attitudes, inspire anti-trafficking action and give voice to survivors. Through global partnerships with governments, human rights organizations and the private sector, AWFF deploys art in its many forms to catalyze popular movement against this crime against humanity, ultimately contributing to its eradication.

Our goals are to:

• Illuminate the breadth, complexity and persistence of modern slavery.

• Inspire global action, at all levels of society.

• Focus attention and stimulate dialogue to unleash creativity and imagination that can help end it.

• Build an active alliance of creative artist-activists whose work supports our mission.

• Give voice to those who have suffered from the corrosive effects of enslavement and trafficking.

• Help survivors to find dignity, freedom and justice.
