About

At Creative Court, we believe that it is quite impossible to achieve lasting peace simply through rules and regulations.
True peace can only be found through our shared humanity.

Creative Court strives to be a leading source of inspiration for human consciousness and connection. We work from the understanding that art has the ability to incite empathy and reflection, vital characteristics for peaceful coexistence.

Creative Court develops art projects and reflects on peace and justice, creating artistic stories about humanity and about systems man creates in response to inhumanity.
We collaborate with artists, cultural institutions, universities, legal experts, journalists, and art therapists, among many others.

Creative Court is based in The Hague, the Netherlands.


“Questioning the ostensibly unquestionable premises of our way of life is arguably the most urgent of services we owe our fellow humans and ourselves.”

– Zygmunt Bauman
