Saturday 3 September 12.00 – 5.30pm

This one day event brings together a rich mix of small press publishers, zines and artists’ books.

Part of the Freedom Festival Hull 2016 and Beyond Words Exhibition, visitors have the chance to discover a whole new world of artists work and creativity, to learn about making books and zines, and discuss issues the artists experience in their practice.

Six newly-commissioned artists’ publications, each on the theme of freedom. Challenging, thought-provoking, entertaining. This brand new exhibition is part of Freedom Festival Arts Trust’s Beyond Words programme.

Freedom Festival Arts Trust has teamed up with James Reckitt Library Trust, Hull Culture and Leisure Library Services and Book Works for an exciting new project for 2016, entitled Beyond Words.

Six artists/organisations have been commissioned to create a new artist’s publication, based on the theme of freedom. These new works are being exhibited in Hull’s Central Library across the festival weekend and throughout September. Alongside the exhibition launch, an artist’s book fair will take over the library, and a trail of artist installations, centred around the theme of the books, will feature on the streets of Hull during the festival weekend.
