Our Freewheeling project was launched with a showing of the film Wadjda at the Ultimate Picture Palace.
Supported by the Arts Council, the Freewheeling project is about creating a dialogue through art to address issues of freedoms and difference, objectification, identity, ending violence against women and girls, positive body image, resilience & the role of the bike as a vehicle for freedom and social change
Einstein said “A human being is a part of the whole universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
The project has been split into two phases the run up to Carnival on 2 July 2017 and September 2017 – Carnival 2018
