MoVE 2017: Two Arts-based Research Projects

The MoVE project of the African Centre for Migration & Society is holding an exhibition that showcases two visual and narrative research projects conducted in 2016 and 2017.  Both projects involved collaboration with the MoVE Project and the Sisonke Sex Worker Movement. We feature an exhibition of The Sex Worker Poster Project: a poster conducted with persons who sell sex in Mpumalanga, and an exhibition of the sex worker newsletter project entitled, Izwi Lethu: Our Voices.
