is a unique exhibition, educational installation, and event in London

- amplify their important messages
- showcase their multidimensionality
- destigmatize the discussion around lived experience in human trafficking and modern slavery
- engage and empower others facing related challenges
- depict human trafficking and modern slavery in a variety of situational and societal contexts
- create more effective solutions for dealing with trafficking, modern slavery and their aftermath

The Austrian Cultural Forum London promotes cultural contacts between the UK and Austria by organizing events and supporting artists and projects in the fields of music, performing arts, visual arts, literature, film and science.
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals specifically mention human trafficking in the targets of three Goals: 5, 8, and 16
- Target 5.2: Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation.
- Target 8.7: Take immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking and secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour, including recruitment and use of child soldiers, and by 2025 end child labour in all its forms.
- Target 16.2: End abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children.
In the same way that the SDGs were designed to be intersectional and holistic, this initiative takes a collaborative approach to reaching the Targets.
