Ghanaian Artist Dela Anyah Tackles Modern Slavery In New Exhibition

Ghanaian Artist Dela Anyah is known for tackling social issues in relation to his art. Dela Anyah has exhibited one of the pressing issues in our current age “Modern Slavery”.

Modern slavery refers to situations where one person has taken away another person’s freedom their freedom to control their body, their freedom to choose to refuse certain work or to stop working so that they can be exploited. Freedom is taken away by threats, violence, coercion, abuse of power and deception. In Ghana, we hardly open up about modern slavery and streetism. In most houses, you find a little girl in a house serving the entire family.

The exhibition showcases some deep and heart moving topics. Some few topics are Sex slaves and Street kids who are owned.
