in collaboration with:
the incorrigibles: perspectives on disability visual arts in the 20th and 21st centuries
unbound global غير مقيد was a digital community archive that kit designed in collaboration with the award-winning artist rachel gadsden and filmmaker abigail norris, with development funding from THE SPACE.
in this project, the artists asked participants across the middle east and beyond to share how they had addressed the transformations of identity associated with international migration, disabilities and other challenges in their lives by illustrating their experiences through creative mediums.
the artists explored in particular whether the anxieties that people sometimes experienced when encountering unfamiliar places could be explored through creative practice, by making ‘different ways of seeing’ visible. the project launched in 2015, and continues through rachel’s global work to foster creativity amongst marginalised and vulnerable groups.
