Human trafficking is a worldwide problem; there are approximately 21 million victims trapped in modern day slavery*. Men, women and children are subject to physical, verbal, and sexual abuse including forced prostitution and barbaric working conditions. Slaves can be found working in UK factories, farms and yes, even nail salons.
Traffik uses audience interaction to bring a personal outlook on a hard-hitting issue. We ask our audiences to be observant. To take notice of their intuition that something just isn't right, and empower them to do something about it.
For more about Traffik, see what we are up to on our News page.

This experimental installation captures the realities of the student mental health crisis.
Through play with perspective, a shadow screen, projector and colourful art materials, Mend visually explores the emotions and coping methods of a medical student as she attempts to navigate her way through student life.
Mend identifies the effect of alcohol and substances and their lasting chemical effects on our brains. We explore how sleep, diet and self care can reverse these effects and give us the best chance of feeling happy and confident in order to tackle the trials of university life. We invite you to be a fly on the wall and watch the inside of our student's mind come alive in an array of colour and sensation.
