In advance of Earth Day (22nd April) Free Range has teamed up with Extinction Rebellion Canterbury for an experiment in art activism. Local environmental groups have been invited to work with artists from the Free Range community to try new ways of communicating their messages and values.

Award winning podcaster Ben Horner, has been working with artist and Friends of the Earth activist Amanda Thesiger on a series of interviews with environmental campaigners about their visions of a better world. This will be performed with live sound design at Free Range and the Lovely World event in Faversham on 24-25th June.

Puppeteer, theatre maker, part-time shepherdess and Feldenkrais practitioner, Kristin Fredricksson, has been working with Canterbury Repair Cafe to create puppets and theatre from objects that have come through the cafe.

Opening the evening we will hear from Esme Bone and Anna Presilia, an artist duo currently in their second year of the Fine Art Masters, 'Art, Society, Nature', at The Margate School. They work with natural materials to produce sustainable work which explores growth, decay and time. 

This is a celebration of local environmental activism and adventurous culture.
