from illustrator: Designers Against Child Slavery is a design collective that enables creatives from all over the world to rise up against sex trade. We want to see how
affective artists can be when they start breaking the boundaries of culture , race,
religion, and backgrounds to unite for a just couse, and use theire unique styles
and talents to give a voice to the voiceless.
We are a group of artist with passion for making difference in our world.
we leverage our unique gifts and styles to produce artwork, to raise awareness
of the injustice of sex trafficking and inspiring others to use theire talents to
impact the world around us.
The name of the new DACS exhibition is “Episodes”.
This exhibition is all about telling the story of a trafficking victim, through our artwork.
So we will be literally illustrating the “Episodes” of a victims story.
This exhibition will show live in New York City, in October, 2011.

We love the message of bringing light into darkness.
Slavery was, in a very real sense, the first international human rights issue to come to the fore. It led to the adoption of the first human rights laws and to the creation of the first human rights non-governmental organization. And yet despite the efforts of the international community to combat this abhorrent practice, it is still widely prevalent in all its insidious forms, old and new. The list is painfully long and includes traditional chattel slavery; bonded labour; serfdom; and forced labour, including of children, women and migrants, and often for the purpose of sexual exploitation, domestic servitude and ritualistic and religious reasons.
