About the Artist RWB Journal

My work is informed by my personal faith, sense of vulnerability, bereavement, and, my personal experience.

My practice centres on addressing social justice issues of the human condition. I avoid making work of any individual person; so that neither, is the individual stigmatised, nor is the work unduly personalised.

Since January 2012 I have used this blog as part of my reflective journal.
Included in this journal is some of my documentation of my research; the underlined text provides links to web pages etc that have formed part of my research.
The Research Visits category includes some responses to gallery visits.

Open University Human Trafficking Introduction - 2012-06-26

Other ResearchPosted by Richard Tue, June 26, 2012 18:33:37

It was good to find the Open University material, on their website and podcast; especially to watch the video supported by a detailed transcript which concluded with the challenge:

Yet, are people who have been trafficked always asking for protection or are they demanding rights? What if the language of protection and the very idea of victimhood are not part of the solution but part of the problem?

This is something that I will have to carefully consider so that my work does not and is not perceived to be, contributing to the problem!
