Scene 1 The Brothel on the Singel Canal, Old Amsterdam
This scene is dedicated to the Blue Heart Campaign, an awareness raising initiative to fight human trafficking and its impact on society. The Blue Heart Campaign will receive 50% of profits made on any products featuring artwork from this scene.
Anna’s blue sash is inspired by the Blue Heart Campaign. In placing it around her waist it is symbolic of Anna being ensnared by trafficking when she was bought by Raoul. But through the Blue Heart Campaign, the colour blue has also become symbolic of those who are moved to gain the freedom of and support its victims.
The Blue Heart Campaign
The Blue Heart Campaign seeks to encourage involvement and inspire action to help stop this crime.
The Campaign also allows people to show solidarity with the victims of human trafficking by wearing the Blue Heart.
The Blue Heart
The Blue Heart represents the sadness of those who are trafficked while reminding us of the cold-heartedness of those who buy and sell fellow human beings. The use of the blue UN colour also demonstrates the commitment of the United Nations to combating this crime against human dignity.
In the same way that the red ribbon has become the international symbol of HIV/AIDS awareness, this campaign aims to make the Blue Heart into an international symbol against human trafficking. By “wearing”the Blue Heart you will raise awareness of human trafficking and join the campaign to fight this crime.
