Terms and Conditions

Located in the heart of New York at Brooklyn, we have selected the location due to two neighbourly considerations of Amant – This is a newly opened museum by an important philanthropist for collectors and art connoisseurs and home to a Brooklyn-based nonprofit arts organisation in 2019. An institution that supports experimentation and dialogue through exhibitions, public programs and artist residencies.

Passion for Freedom Art Festival offers a large showcase, representing the expression of
freedom at an international scale. Artworks are carefully selected by an independent jury from the most
promising contemporary artists who want to share their stories with the public and 
willing to explore change in their hearts and minds.

The sheer variety of work presented each year is what makes Passion for Freedom
Festival an annual highlight of the cultural and freedom calendar. As always, the public will get the chance to select their favourite artists and vote for the best
work.

The world’s largest freedom festival, with a long history of open-entry exhibitions, represents traditional and cross-media art, which will be presented together with selected film makers. Three visual artists will be nominated for General Awards. The audience will vote
for their favourite piece of art for the People’s Choice Freedom Award during the
private viewing.
