This project has enabled young people to work collaboratively with the artist behind the scenes at Tate Britain. They explored, formulated and communicate their opinions, questioning and debating aspects of the art-making process and its relevance to liberty, revolution and slavery

Working with visual artist Faisal Abdu’Allah, a group of young people (14–16 years) from Park High School in Harrow and St George’s RC Westminster, were invited to explore ideas related to the commemoration of the 1807 British parliamentary abolition of the transatlantic slave trade.

The group engaged with creative research and artistic processes to produce narratives capturing their personal viewpoints on the themes of freedom of expression, liberty, revolution and slavery. This collaborative work, Stolen Sanity, integrates the factual historic time line of Tate Britain’s 1807: Blake, Slavery and the Radical Mind, display, with fictional personal reflections through audio and visual art, revealing contemporary parallels and historic enquiry.
