Introductory Modern Slavery awareness workshop
Colmore BID is proud to be working with the critically acclaimed RahRah Theatre Company to deliver a drama-based workshop that aims to raise awareness of the various forms of human trafficking and modern slavery.
This interactive workshop consists of showing an online version of the 5 star rated theatre production “My Mind is Free”; a powerful interpretation of the degradations of human trafficking. It tells the interlinked stories of four people trafficked to and within the UK and their horrifying tales of abuse, exploitation and enslavement. The production uses a mixture of physical theatre and multi–role playing to portray the epic journey and terrible risks that desperate people will go to in the pursuit of what they believe to be a better life, only to find that they are then exploited, ending up in a far worse position than when they started.
The film is followed by a short online and interactive workshop enabling those attending to engage more with the subject matter, including an insight into spotting the signs of trafficking and highlighting the difficulties and barriers when dealing with slavery victims.
This free to attend event.
