AGES AVAILABLE 5-15

2015

 

Following a micro-residency with Historic Scotland, a unique 2 day exhibition was held in and around Stanley Mills, Perth, Scotland.

AGES AVAILABLE focuses on the use of child labour around the world.
This exhibition took place a day after the second anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh.

Connecting the mill's history during the industrial revolution to countries where child labour is still prevelant, two children, aged 9 and 12, were employed to work in the old mill.

The employees spent the day unpicking school shirts made in a factory known to use child workers.

 

The employees wages were given as a donation to UNICEF
