La Fabrique – Coworking Art Studio AND Freemuse JOIN EFFORTS TO CELEBRATE THE POWER OF MOBILITY FOR FREEDOM OF ARTISTIC EXPRESSION
In 2019, at least 20 artists were denied entry, banned, deported or blacklisted by the country they were travelling to perform in, because of their creative expressions, which question political narratives, religious beliefs and social values. Through those arbitrary and punitive restrictions on the right to freedom of movement, governments attempted to control, intimidate or suppress dissident artistic expressions.
On 3 March 2020, Freemuse and partners in 40 countries around the world will celebrate the 14th annual Music Freedom Day and stand united in solidarity with artists threatened by travel bans and restrictions, through local and online events.
Initiated in 2007, Music Freedom Day is a powerful global celebration of the human right to artistic expression on 3 March each year. Freemuse conceived and coordinates the day to highlight the role and impact of art in our societies and to advocate for the universal rights to create, perform and take part in artistic expressions.

Freemuse is an independent international organisation advocating for and defending freedom of artistic expression. We believe that at the heart of violations of artistic freedom is the effort to silence opposing or less preferred views and values by those in power–politically, religiously or societally–mostly due to fear of their transformative effect.
Our work includes monitoring and documenting violations of artistic freedom, as well as exposing laws and policies that enable and sustain these violations. Freemuse’s approach is human rights-based and provides an international legal framework, as well as lays out the principles, for accountability, equality, non-discrimination and participation.
