The purpose of the HEDDA Foundation is to foster human rights, equality, democracy and development through artistic projects and programmes. The term “artistic projects” is to be understood in a broad sense and includes all art forms.

By initiating and supporting exceptional art and art projects internationally, the foundation wishes to foster democratic processes in relation to art projects and society at large. The foundation’s projects are based on cooperation with exceptional artists in different countries and regions, whose affiliation with and commitment to human rights, equality and development are evidence based and evidence oriented. In doing so, high-quality art and fair rights processes will be guaranteed.
