Freedom Talks: In conversation with Guardian investigative journalist Annie Kelly

It’s another seven months until Freedom Festival 2019, however we’re busy keeping the conversation going with our year-long programme of work and and will be hosting a Freedom Talk on 26 March, with award winning human rights journalist and editor of the Guardian’s Modern-day slavery in focus series Annie Kelly.

The event marks the anniversary of the Modern Slavery Act, which received Royal Assent on 26 March 2015.

The landmark bill to help eradicate modern slavery was the first of its kind in Europe, and one of the first in the world, to specifically address slavery and trafficking in the 21st century.

To mark this occasion, we’re joining forces with our friends at Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation (WISE) to host a discussion with award-winning human rights journalist and editor of the Guardian’s Modern-day slavery in focus series Annie Kelly.

The event sees the Guardian journalist return to the city following her successful Freedom Talk as part of last year’s Freedom Festival.

The evening will also feature live spoken word and an exhibition of photographs from the Modern-day slavery in focus series ‘Faces of Slavery’.

This event is part of ‘Freedom Talks’ a partnership between the University of Hull and Freedom Festival Arts Trust.

The event starts at 6.30pm. Tickets are free however booking is required. Book your ticket here
