Artistic Freedom?

Call to Contribute to the Work of the UN Special Rapporteur in the Field
of Cultural Rights!

In 2009 the Human Rights Council, through Resolution 10/23, decided to
establish, for a period of three years, a new special procedure entitled
"independent expert in the field of cultural rights". The mandate was
extended in 2012 for a period of three years, conferring to the current
mandate holder, Farida Shaheed, the status of Special Rapporteur in the
field of cultural rights (Resolution 19/6).

The Special Rapporteur's annual report to the Human Rights Council, to be
presented in June 2013, will be devoted to the issue of The Right to
Artistic Freedom. To this effect, a questionnaire was sent to all
stakeholders along with an invitation to take part in a public
consultation to be held in Paris on 6 December 2012.

You are invited to complete the questionnaire, available in English,
French and Spanish, and circulate it broadly in your networks. Even if you
cannot complete the whole questionnaire, you are encouraged to fill it in
- it will certainly be very interesting to make the voice of the civil
society heard.
