Description

My Mind is Free

Modern Day Slavery Awareness Event

This event is run by Rah Rah Community Theatre Company in partnership with the Essex Police and SAMS Partnership and uses a unique and engaging way to raise awareness of human trafficking. The event comprises:

1pm Welcome and an opportunity to network with other professionals and volunteers.

1.30pm Theatre production by Rah Rah Community Theatre Company called “My Mind is free”. The production uses a mixture of imaginative physical theatre and skilful multi–role playing to tell the interlinked stories of four people trafficked to and within the UK and their horrifying tales of abuse, exploitation and enslavement. Nominated for best stage play by the Anti-Trafficking Foundation in 2016 and Amnesty Edinburgh Festival: Freedom of Expression Award 2017.

2.35pm Break

2.45pm Rah Rah Community Theatre Company, SAMS Partnership and the Essex Police will run a 80 minute workshop on spotting the signs of trafficking. The workshop will also cover local information and give those attending the chance to engage with the characters from the play, highlighting the difficulties and barriers when dealing with slavery victims.

4.15pm Rah Rah Community Theatre Company, SAMS Partnership and the Essex Police will be available to answer any questions.

4.30pm Close.
