Event Details

Arts to End Slavery (A2ES) is an awareness raising art project that aims to bring attention to human trafficking in Kenya. It was developed and launched in 2015 by a Nairobi based NGO called Awareness Against Human Trafficking (HAART) and this year it is partnering with PAWA254. This project recalls the place of contemporary art and artists in addressing communal issues in the society. Through art we can contest many of society’s beliefs, assumptions, and actions and provide a place for multiple dialogue to critical issues. This way we begin to see artists not only as content creators but also as causers to action.
