Artists at Risk Connection

Artists at Risk Connection (ARC), a project of PEN America, aims to safeguard the right to artistic freedom of expression around the world, and to ensure that artists everywhere can live and work without fear. Designed as an interactive hub to gather, share, and coordinate the many resources, services, and forms of assistance available to artists at risk, ARC aims to assist imperiled artists and fortify the field of organizations that support them.

You can learn more about ARC’s work on their website and social media @atriskartists. Most importantly, if you know any artists in need of urgent support or an organization that would like to join the network, please encourage them to fill out this encrypted form.
