Trading Faces Recollecting Slavery

Trading Faces Recollecting Slavery

The Trading Faces online exhibition was designed and curated by Alda Terracciano between 2007 and 2009 as part of the Trading Faces Recollecting Slavery Project, a cataloguing and creative interpretation programme which Future Histories developed in collaboration with Talawa Theatre Company, the Victoria & Albert Museum Theatre Collections and The National Archives (A4A Programme). The online exhibition makes use of archive records, as well as video and audio material, to explore the legacy of the Transatlantic Slave Trade in British performing arts and society over the past 200 years. Developed over a period of two years with the contribution of artists, historians, journalists, students and activists, the exhibition was launched in January 2009 and has since been used as a research tool on the history of black performance in the UK.
