In this paper, the philosophy of creative expression is examined, with an emphasis on the value of artists' ability to create without being constrained by the rules of society or habit. It emphasises how everyone has the freedom to engage in and take part in a variety of artistic works since artistic expression is seen as a fundamental human right. The capacity to appreciate the arts and to disseminate artistic expressions are also seen as unlimited. This paper claims that creative freedom, a fundamental tenet in a democratic system that protects and preserves people's rights to express their thoughts, is crucial for the cultural and political well-being of society. Many human rights organisations are aware of and work to uphold the freedom of speech in the arts. It defines censorship as the imposition of limitations or prior approval on the public transmission of content, frequently justified by worries about public order, state security, or the preservation of others' reputations.
