Art and cultural activities can provide an unconventional, yet effective vehicle for democratic change. EED assists individuals or initiatives that use traditional or innovative artistic expression to promote democratic values and freedom of expression.

Overview of EED support

Support includes a range of initiatives from a platform for artists and intellectuals to promote freedom of speech, to theatre groups and cultural hubs for marginalised youth groups. By stepping in when other international donors are unable to do so, EED assists activists to engage in civic participation through cultural activities.
