ICORN is an organisation for cities and regions which offer long-term, temporary refuge to persecuted writers, artists, and journalists.
More than 70 cities have joined ICORN to promote freedom of expression and human rights, and host writers, artists, and journalists at risk. We are continuously expanding to include cities in Africa and the Americas. Below you can find the cities which are currently hosting an ICORN resident or have committed to receiving a writer, artist, or journalist at risk within the next year. You can read more about the ICORN Cities of Refuge, their hosted residents, and learn more about the management of the residencies by browsing the separate city pages below.
