Anti-Slavery Interantional is hosting an amazing evening of art, film and music at Shoreditch’s Village Underground. Anti-Slavery International and Village Underground continue their partnership with leading street artists and DJs to produce an exclusive one-night-only event of street art, film, and music to make a stand against global slavery as part of the ‘Follow Your Art’ – Street Art Against Slavery’ initiative.
‘Follow Your Art’ is a new campaign introduced by Anti-Slavery International consisting of multi-art events to raise awareness and funds for the charity while at the same time embracing and supporting street art. Anti-Slavery International is the oldest international human rights organisation in the world and the only UK charity to focus exclusively on slavery. Tragically, over twenty million people still live in slavery today and Anti-Slavery International works at local, national and international levels to eliminate all forms of slavery around the world such as human trafficking (including sex slavery), bonded labour, forced labour and various forms of child labour.
Tickets will be limited and in high demand with a headlining set from Grooverider. A pioneer within the UK drum and bass music scene, Grooverider has been an integral part of the underground scene for well over 15 years taking influence from House, Reggae, Hip Hop and Funk. With an amazing career of performances worldwide and his long running show on BBC Radio 1, Grooverider will bring it all together for one-night-only in support of Anti-Slavery International.
‘Follow Your Art’ will feature creations and donations from some of London’s most influential street artists including Benjamin Murphy, Dscreet, James Jessop, Jo Peel, Remi Rough, RYCA, Pure Evil and Vinnie Nylon. There will also be a premiere of a specially created edit of ‘DOTS’, which is an ongoing film project looking at the roots of graffiti and street art with a focus on the notoriously influential book Subway Art (1984). ‘DOTS’ examines the ephemeral nature of the street art phenomenon and its role in the art world, featuring James Jessop and interviews with Eine, Miss Van, Os Gemeos, Blade, Futura, Conor Harrington, Dabs Myla, Lister, Ron English and Kid Acne.
