This is the first comprehensive collection of murals focused on modern slavery and human trafficking. Funded as part of the AHRC Antislavery Usable Past grant, it brings together anti-slavery murals from across the world and demonstrates the emergence of an anti-slavery mural movement from the early 2000s to today. The collection depicts modern slavery in general, alongside more specific types, including forced sexual exploitation and forced labour. It demonstrates the power of art to build community activism and imagine freedom.
