Faces of Freedom

Injustice is having knowledge, opportunity & capacity, yet remaining silent — Rob Swenson

Faces of Freedom

"Art at its best draws attention not only to the way things are but also to the way things will be, when the earth is filled with the knowledge of God as the waters cover the sea. That remains a surprising hope, and perhaps it will be the artists who are best at conveying both the hope and the surprise."

— N.T. Wright

We believe artists have a unique ability to observe people deeply and create dignity, hope, and beauty amidst the brokenness of our world. Through the Faces of Freedom exhibit, artists utilize their talents to bring light to the true stories behind the scourge of slavery and violent oppression.

The faces you see have come from all across the globe and have been given new life through one of our extraordinary after-care partners – Agape International Mission (AIM), 10ThousandWindows and Tiny Hands International.

The exhibit invites visitors to follow survivors’ real life journeys from oppression to rescue, restoration, and ultimately freedom. The paintings, each crafted by a critically-acclaimed artist, give viewers a chance to enter into a victim’s experience, reflect on their own stories of injustice, and inspire action.

A brief explanation of the survivor’s story accompanies each portrait. Visitors are encouraged to consider a series of questions as they progress through the exhibit and learn practical ways to join the fight against oppression. Faces of Freedom is designed to travel to schools, universities, libraries, churches, galleries, airports, hospitals and other civic venues.
