ArtVeda has been active as a courageous and dedicated host of the AR-Candidate Remi Sarmini, a Syrian director and actor who was denied a Schengen visa to Germany and Finland.  ArtVeda independently hosted Sarmini without AR funding.

Currently, AR-Tunis at ArtVeda is hosting AR Resident – Benjamin Abras, funded by AR with the help of multiple international agencies, including ProtectDefenders.

In the near future, ArtVeda has joined the “Artists at Risk (AR) – A European Network of Safe Havens (AR-ENSH)” as an EU network-partner.

ArtVeda acquired the support of a vast network of activists and formal associations who work in culture, art, and human rights.

AR-Tunis at ArtVeda will be funded by the EU Creative Europe project “Artists at Risk (AR) – A European Network of Safe Havens (AR-ENSH)”AR-Art Veda is part of the AR-Network curated and coordinated by Perpetuum Mobile (PM).
