Surveying the Land: Legacies of Slavery (2019- 2020) is a practice based research project hosted by The International Slavery Museum Liverpool in partnership with City Hearts, Liverpool. Collaborating with Choreographer Magdalen Bartlett Kwant will initiate a socially engaged project with female survivors of modern slavery. The project will realise a new moving image installation co-created with female survivors of modern day slavery, making reference to the historical legacies of the trans- Atlantic Slave trade through dance, movement, sound and film. The project will be supported with artist’s professional development mentoring by Mark Devereux Projects and film production mentoring by Armadillo Productions. The outcome - a new moving image installation will be exhibited at The International Slavery Museum later in Autumn this year.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
