About Art for Amnesty


Art for Amnesty is a global project working with art organisations and artists who believe in human rights. By adding their voices to our campaigns, artists help us reach out to their audiences. Using their exceptional skills and talents, they spread the human rights message across countries and continents and inspire people to act.

“Arts and artists have a unique power to bring people together and inspire positive action. Amnesty recognizes that power and uses it to call for change”.
Annie Lennox
