Tony's Chocolonely, the chocolate supplier aiming to eradicate modern slavery from the cocoa industry, is hosting a free kick-off party to their REFRAMED exposition. It's happening this Thursday, October 3, from 6-9pm at the Okay Space Gallery with some light bites from Gold Coast Catering, the Chocotruck and good tunes spun by Gflamee. The event will feature a discussion with Tony's Chocolonely and photographer Joshua Kissi, the creative mind behind the REFRAMED concept.

REFRAMED shows Kissi's travels to Ghana and the Ivory Coast to document the farmers, workers and beautiful souls who cultivate some of Tony Chocolonely's world famous tasty treats. In the project, Kissi is working to, well, reframe two narratives: 1) that of Africans working in agriculture and 2) the acceptance of modern slavery and child labor in cocoa farming. Expect a lively event that honors the good work that is coming from the partnership between Kissi and Tony's Chocolonely. Come on through, it's free. RSVP here.

When: October 3, 6-9pm

Where: OkaySpace Gallery, 281 North 7th BKLYN
