Festival artist invites you to be part of Hull’s portrait

With audiences to this year’s Freedom Festival experiencing the programme from afar, Kaleider’s A Portrait Without Borders is bringing the audience together in a very different way.

A festival where audiences expect the unexpected, Freedom Festival has responded to these unprecedented times with a programme being broadcast digitally and via the BBC during what would have been the festival weekend.

Until Sunday, submit your selfie via the Freedom Festival app or website and see if it’s selected to be drawn by robots on an empty Hull Truck Theatre stage as creative company Kaleider brings a sense of togetherness to a community physically separated for a long time. A Portrait Without Borders is premiering in Hull before going on a national tour.  

Grab a front row seat to Hull’s award-winning arts festival from anywhere in the world and get ready to experience this one-off Freedom Festival from home, with an online programme including music, dance, circus, spoken word, talks and debates.   

Freedom Festival takes place until Sunday. Download the Freedom Festival app or visit the festival’s website at www.freedomfestival.co.uk to view the full programme, listen live, watch, stream, play and more.
