The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Modern Slavery Partnership, in conjunction with Hampshire Cultural Trust, are proud to present the emotive and thought-provoking exhibition The real faces of Modern Slavery: unmasking the truth’.

This new exhibition is a journey through the compelling stories of survivors identified and supported within our surrounding area, with visual and audio content depicting their experiences past and present and their future aspirations as they start to attempt to rebuild their lives. 

Exploitation types found within Hampshire include sexual exploitation of both adults and children, criminal exploitation including that within county lines and cannabis factories, labour exploitation such as that taking place in nail bars and car washes and financial exploitation in the form of benefit fraud.

The exhibition will be touring Hampshire and the Isle of Wight from 5 October 2021, starting at Westbury Manor Museum.

This exhibition has been developed as a partnership initiative to raise awareness of Modern Slavery and it is hoped that visitors will leave with an understanding of how this can manifest in different scenarios within our everyday lives.
