Take Part In The 50 State Initiative
Since 2016, For Freedoms has produced special exhibitions, town hall meetings, billboards, and lawn sign installations to spur greater participation in civic life. This year, For Freedoms launched its 50 State Initiative, the largest creative collaboration in our nation’s history. Our goal is to encourage broad participation and inspire conversation around November’s midterm elections. Building off of the existing artistic infrastructure in the United States, For Freedoms has developed a network of over 300 artists and 200 institutional partners who are producing nationwide public art installations, exhibitions and local community dialogues in order to inject nuanced, artistic thinking into public discourse. Centered around the vital work of artists, For Freedoms hopes that these exhibitions and related projects will model how arts institutions can become civic forums for action and discussion of values, place, and patriotism.
We want you to play a part in helping us to reshape the cultural and civic landscape of American life.

Code of Ethics
For Freedoms wants to make creativity an American value. We want citizenship to be defined by the creative use of one’s voice, one’s body, one’s mind, and ultimately one’s vote. We want people to shape the cultural systems that shape their lives — politics, art, advertising, civic life — by participating in them, rethinking them, and hacking them.
We also want to be kind to one another, especially when we disagree.
Participation in the For Freedoms’ programs is subject to the observance of the organization’s Code of Ethics:
We are inclusive.
We stand up for each other.
We talk to people’s faces, not behind their backs.
We are anti-violence. We are anti-partisan.
We trust each other to go places we don’t know.
We think critically.
We are for freedoms and for each other.
