About the event

As part of our London Leadership Network Series, we are delighted to invite you to a private view of the Sara Shamma: Modern Slavery exhibition. Join us in King’s exhibition space at the Arcade in Bush House for a behind-the-scenes visit. Hear from the artist herself, as well as curator Kathleen Soriano and Dr Siân Oram, lecturer in Women's Mental Health at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King's.


About the exhibition

Human trafficking and modern slavery affect an estimated 40 million people worldwide.

Sara Shamma: Modern Slavery draws attention to this pressing global issue through a new series of large-scale portraits by London-based Syrian artist Sara Shamma.

The exhibition is the result of a research-based residency as part of the King’s Artists programme at King’s. Based within the Health Service and Population Research Department in the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, the artist worked closely with Dr Siân Oram and in partnership with the Helen Bamber Foundation.
