Art Is Freedom

Art Is Freedom is Hestia's annual photography and art exhibition, featuring work captured and created by survivors of modern slavery, and marking Anti-Slavery Day on 18th October.

The exhibition enables survivors of modern slavery to creatively tell their story and express their recovery journey with the aim of highlighting the prevalence of modern slavery in the UK today.

In previous years, Art Is Freedom has featured at London's Anise Gallery as well as at London Bridge station. In 2020, Art Is Freedom will return for a third year running.

Hestia's Modern Slavery Response

Hestia's Modern Slavery Response service began in 2011, and since then, we have supported more than 3,300 victims to recover from the trauma they have faced. We provide 6 safe houses in London and Kent, in addition to pan-London outreach support in every London borough.

Last year alone, we supported more than 1,300 adults and 500 dependent children.

We also offer longer term support via our volunteer-led Phoenix Project, where members of the community can volunteer their time and skills to support victims of modern slavery into an independent life within their communities.
