THE CHANNEL

by Isobel Tarr (UK)

5 - 11 and 13 October

FREE

The Channel is an installation that enables you to
communicate across borders. For nine days, people
in Manchester will be able to connect with people
indefinitely detained in UK immigration removal
centres via the sculpture, which resembles an old
fashioned phone box. You are invited to listen to
messages sent by real people in these centres throughout the week, and respond to the individuals with your own questions and thoughts. The phone booth enables the exchange of messages between Manchester and UK detention centres, which will later form a sound artwork.

These ‘exchange’ times will be delivered in collaboration
with local community groups actively engaged in
campaigning to end detention in the UK, where you can also learn and share ideas for breaking down borders in our communities.
