ABOUT

Art to Zebras is what we can imagine it to be…art from A to Z.

Focused on raising awareness about global human rights issues through contemporary arts initiatives.

Committed to bringing art and artists voices to bear on vital global human rights issues, through projects and dialogues across disciplines in order to shed light on what it means to be human and to have rights.

Our goal is to be a catalyst for change in policy approaches in areas including women’s rights, sexual and reproductive health, race and gender issues, immigration and refugee crises.

Anita is thrilled to be partnering with human rights lawyer and childhood friend, Alicia Ely Yamin to move this agenda forward. Read more about Alicia here.
