STICHTING ART.1 IS AN AMSTERDAM BASED FOUNDATION WORKING IN INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION PROJECTS ON HUMAN DEVELOPMENT, DEMOCRATIC PARTICIPATION AND HUMAN RIGHTS THROUGH THE ARTS.
We work in the intersection between social and cultural work, using art as a driver for change. The organisation was established in 2011 and it uses the first article of the Dutch constitution as its founding document, which states that no one shall be discriminated on grounds of religion, race, political or sexual preference – the organisation’s name refers to ‘article’ as well as to the arts, designing and implementing large, medium and small scale projects using art as a form of expression, communication and social transformation.
We produce film, podcast and storytelling in connection to human rights and LGBTi rights and develop trainings in the arts for personal development. Over the years art.1 produced multiple award winning documentaries and short films and it worked towards a more inclusive and diverse landscape for filmmakers. Through various projects, such as the renowned International Queer & Migrant Film Festival and Supernova Cinema, Stichting art.1 builds its name as innovative and its constantly challenging the status quo.
Throughout the years, Stichting art.1 worked with talented filmmakers, storytellers, change makers, civil society organisations and young individuals on visibilization of human rights and LGBTi rights through multiple art projects in different parts of the world. We offer a platform for all those untold stories to be told though film, podcast and storytelling. The foundation grew into a bureau for human development, democratic participation and human rights projects with partners all across the globe.
