Friends of Free Expression was birthed from our initial work with the artist and activist Ai Weiwei. He continues to be a source of inspiration. We are collaborating with a range of artists, galleries, museums and organizations dedicated to the social and cultural values of art and activism. Our broader mission is to promote our universal right to “free expression” around the world.
We intend to use this platform to build a sustainable and collective “voice” to serve this mission, while broadening the inclusivity of artists, actors, writers, directors, musicians, journalists, poets, and activists to contribute and join. Revenues generated from the sale of books, media, and prints support the operating costs for this global initiative.
