Free Translation is a multi-disciplinary project showcasing international works by persons affected by imprisonment.
In this project we view works of art and letters received from prisons all over the world. Together we interpret the meaning of the works and create responses based on the translations. These are then sent to the original authors and added to the online exhibition. In this edition the special focus is on political prisoners in Russia.
Workshop facilitators Arlene Tucker and Anastasia Artemeva.
Arlene Tucker is an artist, diversity agent, and educator currently based in Joutsa, Finland.
