On Tuesday 10 May, the 9th World Summit Discussion Paper was launched at a virtual public event hosted by IFACCA and the Swedish Arts Council and attended by members of the arts and cultural sectors and broader international community from over 60 countries.

The Discussion Paper shares perspectives on artistic freedom from eight cultural experts: lead author Sara Whyatt (United Kingdom) and contributing authors: Roxana Miranda Rupailaf (Chile), Basma El Husseiny (Egypt), Letila Mitchell (Fiji), Katalin Krasznahorkai (Germany), Irene Agrivina for House of Natural Fiber (HONF) [Indonesia], Patrick Sam (Namibia) and Maria Lind (Sweden). They each draw from their professional journeys and lived experiences as artists, activists, collectives, curators, educators, researchers and policymakers.
