In a networked world, it is important that we work in solidarity to promote global artistic freedom. NCAC was one of the groups at the Copenhagen Summit on Artistic Freedom of Expression, a gathering of international organizations representing more than 1400 organizations and international networks worldwide. The Summit resolved that:

“There is an urgent necessity to launch an international initiative to protect and promote freedom of artistic andcreative expression. This initiative will serve as an information exchange and monitor and analyze censorship in the arts worldwide, expose the persecution and censorship of artists and hold governments accountable to their obligations under the relevant international conventions and national laws. The initiative will further advocate in support of artistic and creative freedom worldwide and direct artists in distress to existing information, funding and other resources for emergency and ongoing support.”
