Meet! Talk! Communicate!
We live in an age of unprecedented change. Change and destruction.
For many across the globe – people, cities, cultures – this ever-present process manifests itself in fear and prejudice.
FREEARTUS is committed to addressing this change head-on. Bridging cultures, connecting people and breaking prejudices by breaking bread — with its initiatives and projects, FREEARTUS proves the power of art, knowledge and empathy.
Learning from each other by knowing each other. That is what FREEARTUS stands for.
Artists and refugees united for freedom
FREEARTUS is not a service organization — we’re a cooperative. This century’s phenomenon of migration is not going to be sorted out with selective help or give and take, rather by working together. Through digital media, many millions of people around the world are demanding their right to prosperity and freedom.
It is therefore necessary to create and try new models of cooperation. For this reason, FREEARTUS establishes its primary means of project development and refugee integration through its united focus on freedom of art, education, and culture.
We strive together with partner organizations abroad to improve living conditions in Lebanon – specifically in the Bekaa Valley and in the countless refugee camps on the Syrian border – and in Egypt to stabilize everyday lives and social relations, in order to support local levels of society on the difficult path towards a democratic future. With all of this, we believe in the power of humanity and the arts.
