We just launched TheAmmo.org, a free vault with carefully curated socially engaged visual content open to anyone to use or adapt non commercially.
We believe that art is a weapon. Powerful visual content not only drives coverage but fosters empathy and pushes engagement. But NGOs and activists often lack the capacity and resources to make their work or campaigns visible.
Our art foundry democratizes remarkably designed campaign materials (posters, cards, videos) concerning human rights issues, to be printed, shared or adapted by social justice fighters all across the world, online and offline. All featured works are published under Creative Commons-Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC-BY-NC-SA).
The platform is still in its early beta version, with a fully-functioning site launching at the end of 2019.
The initial wave of content is dedicated to the fight for women’s rights. Over the year, we will expand the artworks on other human rights issues such as LGBTQ+ rights, media freedom etc.
Currently, all featured works were produced during our innovative format Fine Acts Sprints, a creative bootcamp exploring the intersection of human rights and visual arts.
If you are an artist and are interested in supporting activists with your work by featuring it at The Ammo, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
