Also, on the 17th November: Survivor’s Ink and human trafficking survivors will be having a conversation at the gallery, disclosing what they do and how their work have been impacting peoples lives. Also the musician Scott McFarnon will perform the music “Crazy Heart” that is inspired in Jennifer’s life as a survivor of human trafficking. 
The Artists and Survivor’s INK will only be in London for 3 days, and I feel that is such an important theme, that unfortunately many people still aren’t aware, and  I would love to reach as many people as possible.
