Success for Anti-Slavery Art Project, ‘Lilacs in Bloom’


Lilacs In Bloom by Joy C Martindale  (2019) Detail showing a sectioned created by a participant in the project.

Migrant Help have positively reviewed my recent Arts Council England funded project:

 “Migrant Help had been looking to re-introduce artistic activities for our clients and Joy’s sessions were nothing short of excellent. We noticed a big difference in terms of confidence and artistic expression from our clients during these workshops. Joy brought such enthusiasm and dedication to the workshops. Migrant Help attended the launch of the exhibition in Dover and it was fantastic to see the artwork displayed and to hear the conversations it brought about.”
