The Artraker Annual Award is for contemporary artists / organisations that make a direct positive change in countries that have experienced social upheaval and violent conflict. Artraker is interested in the significance of the artists' contribution to change and the co-creation of experiences of freedom in the midst of conflict.
Artraker will offer three Award Funds of £2,500 (per Award) for completed work or work that can be further developed. The award winners and 9 shortlisted artists/organisations will be invited to join the Artraker network ("the Artrakers"). The Artrakers' works will be shown at exhibitions in London and Paris. The award winners will be announced in the run up to International Peace Day, 21 September 2014.
