Commissioned Art Project

During the summer of 2022 a project of commissioned art works developed and managed a month long art display in Somerset to raise awareness of modern day slavery exhibiting commissions in outlets across the area. Numerous conversations occurred and over 2500 information leaflets were distributed.

We remain grateful for all who contributed whether by providing, displaying, or discussing the works and the issues raised.

The Sparrows Project worked with a range of local artists, who have created art works, addressing the issue of slavery across the West Somerset and Sedgemoor Districts.

Click on the artists below to see more about the works.

You can also view the art works in a range of locations around the local area.
