West Yorkshire Modern Slavery Victims Voices Exhibition, Anti-Slavery Week

Palm Cove Society is proud to actively support the West Yorkshire Modern Slavery Victims Voices Exhibition taking place during this Anti-Slavery Week. This is an amazing event that has brought together many partnership agencies from across the region to recognise those who have survived slavery and trafficking exploitation, both here in the UK and abroad.

The picture above is part of an exhibition featuring expressions of artwork and stories from those that have survived this abuse, allowing their ‘voice’ to be seen and heard by the public.

Art serves as an expression of our innermost emotions and our perception of the world around us, and this exhibition provides everyone with an understanding into their lives.

The Modern Slavery Victims’ Voices Exhibition is going to the district of Calderdale next week, featuring artwork and visual accounts from people who have been exploited through slavery.
