Guidelines of assistance

Aid A awards scholarships to individual artists who through their creative work continue championing democracy and human rights in their home countries.


Aid A – Aid for Artist in Exile helps artists from anywhere in the world who are persecuted in their home countries for standing up for freedom of expression, human rights and democracy, and as a result are being prevented from carrying out their creative work in the areas of theatre, fine art, literature, film and music. The artists are often forced to leave their countries and built up a new existence in exile.
