Who We Are

Mens Artium is inspired by the work of human rights defenders, humanitarians, creators, and artists around the world. It is a non-profit and community-based project that is active at the nexus of human rights, restorative justice, and the arts.


The aim of Mens Artium is to create safe spaces to help survivors of human rights violations process the long-term effects of trauma. To achieve this, we offer free art workshops and mentoring to survivors. Our name “Mens Artium” comes from Latin and loosely translated refers to the intention or reason of the arts.
