By Arterial Network, Cape Town, 2016, ISBN: 978-0-9922252-1-6
The e-book How Free is Free? Reflections on Freedom of Creative Expression in Africa was produced as part of the Artwatch Africa project that aims to defend freedom of creative expression on the continent - who better than the artists themselves to share their creative environment, their questions and their experiences. In total, twenty-five authors representing fourteen countries were selected to be included in the compilation of poems, articles and works of fiction on the subject of freedom of creative expression in Africa. The publication is above all a meditation on the artistic health of the continent, as lived and examined from twenty-five diverse, artistic viewpoints. This publication is a first for Arterial Network and it will be used as a tool to promote advocacy for freedom of expression and creative arts in Africa.
