Atlanta, GA, 2015
Freedom Expressions ATL

Throughout November, ArtWorks for Freedom partnered with the International Human Trafficking Institute, a program of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, to present Freedom Expressions ATL, a campaign that we initiated in Atlanta, GA, to raise awareness of human trafficking, with a particular focus on college campuses throughout the city. Participating colleges included Emory University, Atlanta University Center, Clark Atlanta University, Georgia Perimeter College Dunwoody Campus, Georgia State University, Kennesaw State University and Agnes Scott College. Also participating in Freedom Expressions ATL as an exhibit partner was the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.

ArtWorks’ exhibits, installations, convenings and film screenings were presented on multiple campuses, including:

“This exhibit opened my eyes to a problem I feel a lot of people try to hide and push to the side.” Emory University undergraduate student

“I’m glad something like this is here at Emory because things can be pretty quick during the day and you can get caught in the daily humdrum. [The artwork] is set in a place where you have a large amount of people coming through at high times during the day, but it gets you to stop for a second to really think about a problem that has been inflicting Atlanta for so long – child trafficking and human trafficking.” Emory University graduate student

“Our visitors really enjoyed the experience. The exhibit was truly an eye opener for all of us and made us want to get involved. Thanks for bringing it to the Center and hopefully we can work together again real soon.” NCCHR staffer
