Global Community-Led by Artists and Students
We're creating a new approach to the world's wicked challenges - through publications, podcasts, events, exchanges, and other opportunities that leverage socially engaged art and education.
The World Citizen Artists' mission is to accelerate meaningful action and positive change on global issues by eliminating the barriers of cultural, social, and political differences.
We connect socially engaged Artists and the younger generation to global issues with real-world experienced nonprofits, experts, and leaders - Our aim is to inspire constructive thinking to help accelerate meaningful action - by being a cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary, and multigenerational community.
World Citizen Artists Members agree to abide by the principles below and report any breach of them to help protect the reputation and work of World Citizen Artists and our community.
Assist and promote social and humanitarian issues.
Treat each other with respect, decency, and honesty.
World Citizen Artists refute violence, racism, nationalism, ethnic or national discrimination or aggrandizement, religious proselytizing, gender discrimination, and any form of intolerance. We, therefore, engage in trans-national discussions that do not single out specific nations, religions, or cultures.
Engage with WCA for the community and public interest.
World Citizen Artists engage in solidarity, not self-promotion inside WCA.
In order to work effectively on our mission and to make a social impact as a priority, we reserve the right to exclude anyone from our community, publications, awards, and events who we believe infringe our values or degrades the spirit of the community either directly or by association. The decision to exclude is solely at the discretion of World Citizen Artists.
