Madonna’s Art For Freedom initiative has joined with Tumblr for the month of November to collectively curate a new collection of entries from their community of visual artists. On November 13, Madonna will conduct a live curation on Tumblr of entries and will continue to review submissions all month. The best work of art, photography, video or poetry chosen by Madonna from the November entries will receive a $10,000 grant, which will go to a nonprofit organization or project of the winning artist’s choice. All projects must be focused on a social justice issue and exemplify the values of Art For Freedom.


Madonna commented on the submissions published on Tumbr to #ArtForFreedom live curation.

I’ve lost my inhibitions

I’ve lost who I am

I’ve lost my family 

I no longer know who I am

I’m becoming who I want to be

I’m no longer who I’m supposed to be




A gay Man

Your scared of what I’m becoming

Your stuck where you’ve been

The irony is your living in Sin
