Artists in Action: Ojalá Producciones highlights Modern Slavery
July 25, 2018
Learn more about how artists use their talents to support the campaign to end modern slavery.
Suspended by cables, artists swung from the ceiling and dived in the debris of the ground to tell the story of Forced Labour. Ojalá Producciones, an Argentine theatrical troupe, soared 40 feet above the audience in a breathtaking combination of circus and performance art. The performance was part of the IV Global Conference on the Sustained Eradication of Child Labour in Buenos Aires in November 2017.
The Global Conference brought together more than 3800 participants from more than 100 countries, among whom were the Human Rights Activist and 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Kailash Satyarthi and the 50 for Freedom campaign supporters – the American humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine and the director of the award-winning movie “The Boss: Anatomy of a Crime” Sebastián Schindel.
