ART WORKS Projects’ mission is to use design and the arts to raise awareness of and educate the public about significant human rights issues. We provide visual advocacy tools to encourage action on human rights crises at the grassroots, media, and policy levels. Conceptualized and created in conjunction with established humanitarian and human rights advocacy organizations, ART WORKS’ art and design exhibitions, books, recordings, films, and other initiatives provide opportunities for large numbers of the general population to engage in ending major human rights violations.
