The AI-focused Human Artistry Campaign has grown 50% after its debut at SXSW 2023. It now includes 70+ members across the globe after just two weeks.

Collective support among new members spans journalism, photography, and voice actors, as well as major global organizations representing songwriters, composers, publishers, and independent music. The Human Artistry Coalition is now poised to speak authoritatively on how AI can develop in ways that strengthen the creative ecosystem while continuing to recognize the unique and irreplaceable role of human artistry in culture and the arts.

“Almost daily since we launched, new groups have reached out to join the cause,” a spokesperson from the HAC told Digital Music News. “It’s a testament to the unifying power of the Human Artistry Campaign’s seven core principles and the broader creative community’s intense focus on this issue.”

While creators in the past have waited out emerging technologies, the Human Artistry Campaign is moving aggressively to join the AI debate at the front end. “Creators aren’t waiting to be invited to the table this time,” the Coalition spokesperson continues.

“We are claiming our seat and speaking up now, while there is time to work together with tech to ensure AI is trained and deployed in ways that follow all relevant laws and respect creators’ and performers’ rights.”
