In less than a year, we’ve organized three editions of SPRINTS, our weekend-long creative bootcamp exploring the intersection of human rights and visual arts. It is part of Fine Acts' laboratories for human rights innovation and is fuelled by our concept of #playtivisim – the need for multidisciplinary play in activism.
In this edition, we gave 11 artists 48 hours to take a hard look at the topic of freedom of expression, focusing on press freedom, hate speech and trust in the media.
In SPRINTS, visual artists produce artworks, that range from posters and postcards to GIFs and videos. Take a look at the latest batch of works here.
All creative works produced during SPRINTS are shown at our dedicated pop-up exhibitions, and then made available online through a Creative Commons license on TheAmmo.org, allowing activists and nonprofits from around the world to use them to make their work or campaigns more visible. Powerful visual content not only drives coverage but also fosters empathy and pushes engagement.

The third edition of SPRINTS was supported by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation Southeast Europe, Goethe-Institut, with the general support of Open Society Foundations. The event would also not be possible without the Association of European Journalists, Cohones Beer, Trastena Wines, Skaptobara, TimeHeroes, and our hosts at KO-OP and Cosmos Coworking Camp.
