About

Hands of Freedom at Liberty UK Festival

Vishal Joshi's artwork 'Hands of Freedom' features a series of large hand portraits, directly painted onto the walls at Leicester Museum & Gallery for visitors to discover on the way to the toilets as part of the Accessible Art for All project.

With Leicester being the first of five European cities to showcase temporary art installations by international artists in toilets of local cafés or cultural venues in the city centre, the Accessible Art for All project wants to share messages about how we can live in a fairer and more inclusive society.

AAA. Accessible Art for All is a European initiative led by Explora (Rome) in partnership with ArtReach's Liberty UK Festival (Leicester), Altonale (Hamburg), Muzeiko (Sofia) and Regional Museum of Skåne (Kristianstad).
