freeDimensional (fD) is a platform of collaboration linking community art spaces to social justice movements globally. fD conducts advocacy on behalf of vulnerable groups and produces tactical media to illustrate critical, contemporary issues. fD uses existing resources in the art, media and entertainment sectors to engage and financially underwrite direct actions, raise awareness and instigate change.
Through a working collaboration between fD, their Senegalese partner center, Atelier Moustapha Dime, and Voices of Hope Productions, a space was created for expression on economic migration and detention issues within the framework of the Dak’Art Biennale in West Africa. Voices of Hope Productions designed the Goree Gazette masthead and newspaper that opened to a fold-out 16" x 24" poster. The paper was distributed in public spaces in Dakar including the central marketplace, city center, fishing boat launches, and the exhibition venues of the Dak’Art Biennale to communicate the inherent danger in economic migration, as well as to develop a process of sharing, trust and consensus-building with Dakar pedestrians. The newspaper was translated into three languages, English, Wolof and French for maximum readership among the West African culture's residents.
