  • Beka Vučo

    The Balkans/United States

  • Belarus Free Theater


    for pioneering an award-winning global model of activism that unites artistic, geopolitical, environmental and human rights concerns, using theatre to build a movement for democracy, human rights and artistic freedoms. Belarus Free Theater is the only theater in Europe banned by its government on political grounds.

  • Serhiy Zhadan


    for his work as an internationally recognized poet and novelist, a theater maker, and a revolutionary through on-the-ground action and establishment of the Serhiy Zhadan Charitable Foundation in 2017 to provide aid to the front-lines.
