(ACTION DC!) “Human Trafficking: Reclaiming Freedom”

September 25, 2017 - November 4, 2017

Reclaiming Freedom, A Call and Response, is a collaborative exchange for poets and artists. Curated by noted artist Helen Frederick the call and response invites writers and visual artists to participate, assigning one to call and one to respond. The result is a set of paired works, resonating with each other, demonstrating the interplay of artistic media, and speaking of our times.
