CANCELLED: Let Your Life Speak: Emma Boyd

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to cancel this event. We hope Emma can join us at another time in the near future – we will keep you updated. Apologies to those who were looking forward to coming to the talk.

With a background in visual arts management and later human rights, Emma began to merge her arts experience into working on projects that used photography, film and animation to raise awareness and act as prevention tools on issues that relate to human rights and more specifically gender-based violence. In 2007, Emma began working at the photographic agency Autograph ABP, leaving in 2012 to join the Two Little Girls team as campaigns manager, working with partners across Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia on a prevention film campaign raising awareness of trafficking for sexual exploitation. As senior producer at Animage Films, Emma is involved with new film campaign projects under the Need to Know Campaign that aim to expose global acts and practices that harm women. Since 2016, Emma has been managing the Our Girl forced marriage prevention campaign working with women’s organisations across the UK. 

This event forms part of a series of early evening open seminars hosted by The Centre for Peace and Global Studies at Sidcot School intended to open debate and discussion on contemporary global issues. More than just a collection of ideas, these talks are examples of ideas and values in action, the term let your life speak is usually taken to mean “Let the highest truths and values guide everything you do.”

This informal evening is designed as an opportunity to engage with the speaker, their work and the values that shape their life.
