Description

Commemorating the bicentenary of the abolition of slavery I worked with fifteen teenageers to create project incorprtaing written texts (on sails), ‘guardians’ to protect slaves and a vessel. The finished project was displayed at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Shipley Art Gallery, Gateshead.
