Our societies need new narratives showcasing the connection between migration, human potential and creating the future we all need.

The Emerging Leaders Artivism Alliance is a pioneering program that positions newcomers (refugees and migrants) who are at the cross-roads of arts and social change, to make use of their resilient life experience as potential for leadership and large-scale influence

  • A global community of peers – emerging leaders who can offer you support, connections and friendships for a lifetime
  • Individual mentoring by experienced artists and activists based all over the world
  • Invitations to new networks to amplify your reach
  • The support of potential partners who are actively looking to amplify new voices

“I see myself in a position that allows me to advocate and contribute more effectively in the causes for which I stand. The fellowship has brought me closer to achieving my goals and helped me consolidate my organization. I have also met fellow professionals that I continue to collaborate with, and with whom I share a common vision.”
