Long Walk to Freedom 
'To the better place we dream of

4th - 6th September @ Freedom Festival

Artlink worked with Hull based artist Debi Keable on a commission for The Freedom Festival's ‘Long Walk to Freedom'. Keable had previously created light installations based on the ethereal qualities of tree imagery so when presented with a chance to pitch for one of the six commissions Keable naturally took to trees indigenous to South Africa for inspiration. Keable grew up on Bransholme estate and she was keen to go back to her roots and engage with people from this area to help create the piece.  Artlink organised a series a workshops with Bransholme Community Arts Centre and worked with 7 to 10 year olds from our annual art school, which in turn helped produce over 50 pieces of original drawings and photographs. Keable then digitally manipulate these to create an overall image for her to use in the screen printing studio at Hull School of Art & Design. We exhibited some of the work by BCAE and Art School participants as well as some of Keable's original stencils for her piece entitled ‘to the better place we dream of' which was on show at Freedom Festival early September 2014.
