Katy Perry will be the first guest curator in 2014 for Madonna’s Art for Freedom, a global digital initiative “designed to fuel free speech – to respond, address and protest persecution and discrimination around the world. It is an online public art project encouraging people to express their personal meaning of freedom and revolution, in the form of video, music, poetry, and photography.” Madonna and Vice Media launched Art for Freedom in September 2013 and since then the initiative’s received more than 3,000 submissions of original artwork.
According to the official announcement, Katy will be working with Madonna on selecting submissions to be showcased during the month of January. The two singers will also choose one artist “whose creative expression demonstrates a unique view of the fight for human rights” and that artist will receive a $10,000 grant to a non-profit of their choice.
“Art can change the world, but first it needs to be seen and heard‎,” said Madonna. “Katy Perry and I are asking you to be that voice and show us how you define freedom in 2014. This will be a year of monumental changes for human rights, and we want you to be a part of that change. Let us hear from you.”
“I am so fortunate to have the freedom to express myself through music,” said Katy Perry. “Now I’m calling all of my incredibly creative KatyCats to use their talent to show Madonna and me how they express their freedom. I believe that 2014 can be a year of great social change. Together we can all stand up for Human Rights. Join the conversation, and let your art be your voice.”
