UK Parliament - Parliament in the Making:
UK Parliament has recently announced plans for a major exhibition to commemorate significant historic anniversaries in 2015 and Rachel is absolutely delighted that she is one of the artists who has been selected to be part of this absolutely thrilling commission.
Silence - the Breath is Precious:
Rachel Gadsden's ambition for Silence – the breath is precious is to create a multi-layered narrative film that employs the epic nature of the desert landscape and the Shamal (Ø´Ù Ø§Ù, north wind) as a metaphor for exploring the complex and often painful emotions that individuals and communities may have to endure when embarking upon a cultural shift.
It also looks at the challenges and real anxieties experienced in embracing unfamiliar ideas and moving towards a different way of seeing and doing. The overriding motivation of this project is a heartfelt belief that complete openness and visibility can be achieved in relation to disability and diversity within families and communities, both in the UK and in the greater Arab world.
