Artrix raises awareness of child sexual exploitation
Artrix's resident performance company Outspoken make socially engaged work with and for young people. Last week over 800 13-18 year olds from local schools and colleges attended their latest piece of work, Catfish, which is a fusion of live performance, music and digital technology. Artrix collaborated on some of the digital aspects of the performance with C & T who specialise in new technology and participation.
Joanne Malin from BBC Midlands Today also features in the piece.
Hannah Phillips, Artrix's Artistic Director and Director of Catfish said:
'Catfish explores the important, challenging and sensitive issue of child sexual exploitation. Although this original piece of work is for young people, it is very important that we raise everyone's awareness of the dangers of child sexual exploitation, particularly parents, carers and anyone who works with young people'
