Lilacs in bloom is an exhibition of a new artwork made in collaboration between the local artist Joy C Martindale and survivors of human trafficking and modern slavery supported by Migrant Help.

Human trafficking and modern day slavery are two of the fastest growing international crimes. Anti-Slavery Refugee Art Project is a participatory art project for asylum seekers and survivors of modern day slavery and human trafficking in Kent who are supported by the charity Migrant Help.

Over the course of seven workshops participants have experimented with paint directly onto artist’s linen and canvas and with collaging and sewing found fabrics.

Please come along on 15 February to the opening night of the exhibition between 6-8pm and join us for a Syrian buffet feast and live Roma music. The exhibition will then run until 23 February.

All welcome.
