Old Land, New Waters launch, The Freelands Foundation

February 17th 2021, 7pm

Join us for an evening of online readings and performances to celebrate the launch of Old Land New Waters.

This new publication celebrates two years of activity by the first cohort of artists participating in the Freelands Artist Programme. Old Land New Waters is a slowly unfolding and intimate conversation with a broad range of artistic practices from across the UK. The volume takes its title from an installation by the Vietnamese filmmaker and postcolonial theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha and is influenced by her wider body of work.

This launch event has been conceived as an online broadcast with contributing artists and writers from the book, including Jan Carson, Julie Lovett, Natalie Ann Holborow Ian Watson and Andrew McMillan, who will be presenting short readings, films and performances. The evening will be introduced by the publication editor and Freelands Artist Programme Curator, Edward Ball.
