Cultural Freedom Prize

Cultural Freedom awards and fellowships are granted to individuals in recognition of their extraordinary and courageous work promoting social justice and the human right to freedom of imagination, inquiry, and full cultural expression. These individuals are typically advocates for education justice, prison reform and abolition, environmental justice and protection, social and economic justice, human rights, and press and journalistic freedom. A Cultural Freedom Prize is an award for a lifetime of remarkable achievement.

We invite you to learn more about each of the extraordinary individuals who have been awarded the Prize for Cultural Freedom.

Applications and nominations for the cultural freedom prize will not be accepted.
