The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and inclusive democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. Founded in 1984 by philanthropist George Soros, Open Society supports individuals and organizations across the globe fighting for justice, democratic governance, and human rights.

The world’s largest private funder of human rights, the Open Society Foundations have long engaged with arts and culture for social change—from the Soros Contemporary Arts Centers opened across the former Soviet Union in the 1990s to the Documentary Photography Project’s Moving Walls ongoing exhibition series to the Soros Arts Fellowship launched in 2018 to support innovative socially engaged artists. Today we recognize the importance of artists’ contributions and the necessity of using creativity as a response to increased repression across the globe.
