Guidelines of assistance

TARO assists artists by advocating for and monitoring the state of artistic freedom in Tanzania. TARO also reports and raises awareness on laws governing the art industry through releases and social media publications. Guidelines vary by case.

TARO serves as a human rights defender for artists, focusing on: restrictions on artistic freedom of expression, gender discrimination, unprofessional artistic practices, and violation of artists' rights. The organization achieves this through advocacy, awareness campaigns, monitoring, and reporting on artistic freedom in Tanzania.
