get involved

As a small non-profit organization, ART WORKS relies heavily on our network of collaborators, friends, and supporters to help us produce and activate our work. We’re excited for you to join us!

how to get involved

host an exhibition or screening

An important aspect of AWP’s work is to ensure that a broad range of audiences and stakeholders have access to our visual tools for further activation and engagement. Our exhibitions and screenings have taken place in over 180 cities across the globe in a wide variety of formats and environments including public installations and displays, at international film festivals, university lecture halls and libraries, and as special exhibitions at US Congress and the United Nations.

Our projects are designed to be highly interactive and flexible in how they are installed and viewed through in-person, hybrid, and virtual presentations.

We look forward to working with you on hosting one of our exhibitions or films. After you fill out the form, a member of our team will be in touch to discuss next steps.

submit a project proposal

While AWP relies on our existing networks to identify new projects on timely and resonant human rights issues as well as ethical reporting and storytelling, we are open to exploring opportunities to work with individual artists and organizations eager to connect visual storytelling to actionable advocacy efforts.

If you have an idea or concept for a new initiative around a human rights or social justice issue that can be amplified more in partnership with us, we welcome the opportunity to explore opportunities for collaboration.

intern with us

AWP offers competitive internships year-round for undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in the role of visual arts in human rights advocacy. Interns will gain professional experience through hands-on learning in non-profit operations, an understanding of the human rights ecosystem, and by building relationships with staff, board members, and other stakeholders.

Considering that the needs of a small nonprofit organization vary greatly, the project work will be diverse and the breadth of suggested experience of applicants is wide. Those with interests in international relations, journalism, marketing and communication, design, programming, public policy, language studies, and visual arts and art history – are encouraged to apply by emailing us at directly with a resume, letter of interest, including dates of availability and two references.

Using art to reach hundreds of thousands of viewers, ART WORKS Projects has inspired audience members on five continents to support an end to grave human rights abuses. While we are proud of our impact, we know more essential works needs to be done.
