‘Follow Your Art – Street Art Against Slavery’ aims to raise the profile of Anti-Slavery International through various events that incorporate urban and street art. The primary aim is to use the power and expression of street art to highlight the existence of slavery today. After all, modern day slavery is a complex issue and street art is steeped with a history of politics and protest which resonates with Anti-Slavery International.
Follow Your Art will feature street art from some of London’s most influential street artists including Remi Rough, James Jessop, RYCA, Dscreet , Pure Evil, Vinnie Nylon, Jo Peel, Benjamin Murphy as well as the premiere of a specially created edit of DOTS, an ongoing film project looking at the roots of graffiti and street art with a focus on the notoriously influential book Subway Art (1984). DOTS examines the ephemeral nature of the street art phenomenon and its role in the art world, featuring James Jessop and interviews with Eine, Miss Van, Os Gemeos, Blade, Futura, Conor Harrington, Dabs n Myla, Lister, Ron English and Kid Acne.
