  • Tom Arran, Freedom Festival 2019

Freedom Festival was established as part of the 2007 William Wilberforce commemorations, celebrating the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade of 1807. Since then we have continued to celebrate the important issues of Freedom in a fun, playful, insightful and challenging way.

Using art to raise awareness of important issues from modern day slavery to protest, sustainability and equality we’ve had some very influential figures of Freedom visit Freedom Festival. Who do you associate with the word Freedom? In this activity find out more about figures of Freedom and tell us what laws you would make if you were an MP like William Wilberforce. 

Watch the Wilberforce Lectures featuring leading figures of Freedom Helen Pankhurst and Kofi Annan. 

Freedom Festival and the city of Hull is built on a rich history of pioneers, thinkers, creators and makers. As we navigate these difficult times, we're using the power of culture to keep you inspired and creative at home.

It's a free downloadable resource to support young people learning about figures of Freedom, including the suffragette movement.
