Moving from the city, to the brick kiln, and finally back to the rural villages once called home, the report and exhibition tell untold stories of ‘blood bricks’ and how they embody the converging traumas of modern slavery and climate change in our urban age.

The global launch of our research report and the photography exhibition private view will be held on Tuesday 16 October. We are honoured that former British Ambassador to Cambodia (2014-2018), Bill Longhurst, will provide some opening words. Thomas Cristofoletti, the photographer, will also be participating in the launch. Please contact Nithya Natarajan (Nithya.Natarajan@rhul.ac.uk) for further information if you would like to attend.
