Interconnected: Slavery in the past, present and future is a photography exhibition that depicts stories of survivors.
From an isolated village in Sierra Leone to the dusty brick kilns of India, the exhibition portrays survivors whose lives have been affected by slavery in different ways: domestic workers in Nepal, child soldiers in northern Uganda, families in bonded labour in India. It also speaks of the legacies of the transatlantic slave trade with the story of the Ganga Longoba people from Cuba who reunites with their ancestors in Sierra Leone after 170 years of separation.
The exhibition is a powerful statement and tribute to the resilience and pride of survivors who have had their lives changed by enslavement.
The exhibition is a collaboration between American photographer, Monica Frisell and Australian human rights practitioner/human rights researcher, Laura McManus, Cuban photographer, Sergio Leyva Seiglie, and Norwegian human rights researcher and documentary-maker, Tina Davis.
To be opened by: Emeritus Professor Stuart Rees, founder of Sydney Peace Foundation/Sydney Peace Prize.
Light snacks and drinks will be served.
The launch is open to all.
