We are encouraging New York and Tri-state area based artists. Unfortunately we cannot cover any travel/lodging expenses.

And, remember, there are NO fees for submission!

We are seeking artists who use their creativity as their weapon of justice, and operate under our signature values of
  • Beauty as a fundamental artistic principle; 
  • Sincerity and Vulnerability of presentation; 
  • Celebration of Diversity, and opening doorways of engagement with all members of society.

We believe that creative engagement with all members of the society is the surest path toward social justice and positive change.

The International Human Rights Art Festival, New York City’s pre-eminent arts and human rights performance event, is looking for performers in all media to present work during the week of events and workshops in one of the most welcoming venues for emerging artists in New York City: The Tank!
