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.

Modern Slavery in The UK

Other ResearchPosted by Richard Tue, June 05, 2012 12:42:25
Last week, I was challenged to come across this paper in my study: the Findings Summary of the 2007 Joseph Rowntree Foundation [JRF] report: Contemporary slavery in the UK: Overview and key issues.

This motivated me to investigate further and I discovered the full report on line, together with a summary; in addition I found a number of subsequent reports into modern slavery that JRF have produced.

I am still in the process of studying these resources; and I thought it would be good to gather the links to these JRF reports etc together:
