Madonna and Miley are teaming up to promote creative expression.
It’s been revealed that Madonna has chosen Miley Cyrus as April’s guest curator for the Material Girl’s human rights awareness initiative Art For Freedom.
The Art For Freedom project is a vehicle designed to inspire artists to showcase “their artistic representations on the subject of freedom and human rights.” Each month, Madonna will fork over $10,000 to a non-profit organization that has been chosen by a featured artist.
“There has never been a more crucial time to participate and help create change in the world,” said Madonna. “I’ve been so inspired by people’s submissions since we began and I welcome Miley’s input along with her fans to express themselves artistically and to share their creative ideas on the subject of human rights and freedom of speech. Miley and I look forward to hearing your voices in the format of your choice throughout the month of April and onward.”
Miley also weighed in on the pair’s project partnership.
“Art can speak volumes – I’m glad to join Madonna in encouraging people to have their voices heard at artforfreedom.com,” noted Miley. “It’s an ideal home to see how each of us can participate in changing the world for the better.”
Miley’s not the first pop star to be tapped by Madge to guest curate the Art For Freedom project. Katy Perry took a turn as guest curator back in January.
