LEN MORRIS – Len Morris of Gallen Films presents a multi-media talk on the realities of child labor, and the Beneath the Barcode exhibit. He explains and directs the audience to resources of The Action Kit for Beneath the Barcode, which provides the tools and information needed to get started as an advocate for children.
“Hopes and dreams are not visible on a barcode. The price the scanner reads does not include the childhoods lost by those who labor to produce the food we eat, the clothes we wear and the electronics we buy. It can’t register the inequality depriving these children of the basics for a decent life: food, medical care, shelter, education, personal safety and dignity. The choices we make as consumers can save their lives, restore their childhoods and change our government’s policies to reflect our collective morality, ethics and generosity.”
RICHARD LIMBER – Local artist and filmmaker, Richard Limber talks about the inspiration and influences that result in the artworks he makes in various mediums.
