Lantos Activist Artist Scholarship


Our ÔÇ£Activist ArtistÔÇØ initiative recognizes the powerful connection between human rights and artists around the world. Human rights activists come from many different backgrounds, but one of the most powerful, yet often overlooked, forces in the human rights movement are the artists. Artists can challenge, inform, inspire and ultimately move communities toward understanding, acceptance and change. Through diverse media, such as film, writing, theater, dance, music, painting, poetry and drawing, artists express the raw emotions that can often provoke needed attention and action on human rights crises around the world. As part of our Global Citizenship work, the Lantos Foundation is committed to supporting, encouraging and recognizing the work of Artist Activists who tell human rights stories in ways that are unique, inspiring and significant. The Activist Artist Scholarship was launched in 2020 as an annual competition dedicated to the work of Activist Artists all over the world. All applicants will be challenged to examine the influence of a particular Activist Artist and show how that artist used his/her medium to influence, inform and inspire during their lifetime or beyond, or alternatively, to create their own piece of activist art.
