A face of An African - International Slavery Remembrance Day
National Maritime Museum Greenwich
23 August 2018
For International Slavery Remembrance Day we wanted to take a contemporary approach in which kids would take part in. Through the help of the Maritime Museum archives, we managed to dig up unseen images of African women during the transatlantic slave trade and transform them as supershero masks to celebrate their bravery, courage as well as resistance. We wanted the children to re-write history through art by giving them control of how they saw these particular women.
'Let Her Talk'
10th August 2018
With the recent stories of knife crime in the capital, we wanted to highlight this through role-play. We collaborated with Consented Magazine and SOAS University to host a workshop which looked at this issue from a female perspective. Too often does the media overlook how knife crime affects young women and the after effects it has on them. 'Let Her Talk' allowed young women to voice their anger, sadness, and opinion on how knife crime affects them by acting out real-life scenarios.
