Work on display: Lilacs In Bloom (2019) by Joy C Martindale.
Lilacs In Bloom is a participatory artwork made in collaboration with survivors of modern-day slavery and human trafficking. Working with paint and scraps of colourful cloth collected along the tidelines of the coast in Southeast Kent, we explored creativity as a means of being free in the moment to choose how to express thoughts, feelings and ideas.
