Am I not a woman and a sister is a new artist’s film produced in collaboration with female survivors of modern day slavery in partnership with national charity City Hearts and the International Slavery Museum Liverpool, supported by a National Lottery Project Grant through Arts Council England. The project began with Kwant researching in the archives of the Merseyside Maritime Museum Library, and the collections of the International Slavery Museum. Initial research was followed by a series of collaborative workshops led by British- Barbadian choreographer Magdalen Bartlett Luambia, giving women the tools to create their own performances. The outcome – a moving image installation co-produced with female survivors of modern day slavery, was first exhibited at the International Slavery Museum in 2019.
