Break the childhood cycle

According to UNICEF, an estimated 151 million children around the world are victims of child labor. To get this reality out of the shadows, the ARSIS organization organized a performance on one of Thessaloniki’s main streets: Agias Sofias, on Thursday 16th of January.
The participants, with white masks on their faces as an allegory of child labor, offered packs of tissues to passersby.
These white-faced ‘children’ were moved like puppets, by a black-faced ‘system’ with stilts that forced them to work for ‘him’.
The discomfort of the people who came across this performance on the street was remarkable; looking away to a reality that surrounds us.

Sharing is caring!
