aside Call for Artists, Writers, Musicians and Creatives: Share Your Voice on Human Rights

Art Saves Lives International are BACK!
With a NEW campaign – and we want YOU to submit and be featured in ASLI Magazine.

For ISSUE 5 we are focusing on:

Human Rights

We are looking for artists and creatives from all disciplines from all over the world to be featured in ASLI MAGAZINE!

Human rights are moral principles that describe certain standards of human behaviour, and are regularly protected as legal rights. They are commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights

“to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being”

and which are

“inherent in all human beings”

regardless of their nation, location, language, religion, ethnic origin or any other status. They are applicable everywhere and at every time in the sense of being universal, and they are egalitarian in the sense of being the same for everyone.

We would like you to submit a piece of visual art / music / creative writing / film / dance / performance art on one of the following issues surrounding human rights:


  • Right to Equality
  • Freedom from Discrimination
  • Right to Life
  • Freedom from Slavery
  • Freedom from Torture
  • Right to Free Movement
  • Right to Asylum
  • Right to Marriage and Family
  • Freedom of Belief and Religion
  • Freedom of Opinion and Information
  • Right to Education
  • Freedom of speech
  • Right to sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Right to sexual and reproductive rights

So what do you need to do?

  • Please submit ONE piece of work for consideration, this can be ONE collection or ONE piece (if you submit more than one with no clear explanation we will look at your first one and choose according to this)
  • State your artistic discipline and chosen topic.
  • Please read about us first, see if you want to be part of our mission and make sure you understand who we are what we are about.
