EXSOLVO - an exploration of release

The concept of freedom from trafficking is complex. Survivors are often faced with psychological, social, emotional and spiritual bonds that go beyond the physical release from slavery. In Latin, EXSOLVO means 'to loose'. EXSOLVO is a partnership between The Natashas Project, visual artist Ruth Fox and musician ANNA of The JAM Network UK. The dance installation, performed by Harriet Parker-Beldeau, uses embodied media through dance, visual and sound to explore the experience of enslavement and release in human trafficking, while raising awareness and educating a wider audience of this social issue, as a part of the POW Festival Thanet.

This is not an ‘out there’ phenomenon; this is a story of our place.

The dance will be filmed for public view and the installation piece will be on display through the POW Festival March 7-11 at the Pie Factory Gallery, Margate. The live public performance will take place Thursday March 7th at Market Place, Margate.

A Night of Hope with Sophie Hayes & The JAM Network UK

This evening is fundraising for the Sophie Hayes Foundation, an anti-trafficking organisation in London that rehabilitates survivors of human trafficking, in collaboration with The JAM Network UK. We don't often realise just how prevalent trafficking is, not only abroad, but also in England (and London especially). This event will raise awareness of this issue, while focusing on the hope and purpose that each person has, regardless of their story. 

The event kicks off at 7.30pm on Saturday November 18th, at Trinity House Clapham, off Venn Street (Clapham Common tube is about 5 mins away). Art will be displayed throughout the evening, and wine and refreshments will be served. We cannot wait! 

Acts include:

Lights on the Mountain
Joanne Clara
Sarah Grace

Tickets available through Eventbrite link below. £10 in advance/£12 on the door. Any questions, email Anna: jamnetworklondon@gmail.com

Calling all artists and creatives interested in alleviating and raising awareness about Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery. The JAM Network is having an informal drinks and collaboration night at the BAC. No stress, no impact goals, charts or strategically outlined expectations. Just see it as a platform to discuss ideas, trade skills and suggestions for creative ways to take what you have and use it to further anti-trafficking efforts through positive awareness-raising. 

Rock up, bring friends and a notebook, and start that lateral/vertical creative thinking. We want to hear your ideas!
