Join us for a challenging and thought-provoking photography exhibition, featuring images taken by survivors of modern slavery.
Voice of Freedom is part of this year's Nottingham Reading Programme, a year-long programme of events shining a light on the issue of modern slavery. This event is hosted in conjunction with the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Voice of Freedom organisation.
Voice of Freedom works with women who have escaped trafficking and torture, bringing the voices of the enslaved to a wide public for the first time. This project enables these women to document their lives, feelings and experiences through the camera lens, and supports them as they create texts in their own words to accompany the images.
The exhibition will take place on Tuesday 5 March in The Atrium, Portland Building, University Park Campus from 11am until 4.30pm. It will be followed by an evening of talks and Q&As from 5-6.30pm, exploring the issue of modern slavery, and how it can be represented visually.
The evening event will be hosted by Professor Zoe Trodd, Director of the Rights Lab, and Leila Segal, Director of Voice of Freedom. The Rights Lab is home to the world's leading modern slavery experts and has built a large-scale research platform for ending slavery, based at the University of Nottingham.
No booking is required for the exhibition. The evening event is free but spaces are limited, so please reserve your place. There will be time to view the photography exhibition, and a drinks reception will be provided.
