The Voice of Domestic Workers is an education and campaigning group calling for justice and rights for Britain's sixteen thousand migrant domestic workers. They provide educational and community activities for domestic workers - including English language lessons, drama and art classes, and employment advice, and mount rescues for domestic workers stuck with abusive employers. Their work seeks to end discrimination and protect migrant domestic workers living in the UK by providing or assisting in the provision of education, training, healthcare and legal advice.


Influenced by the Situationists' dérive, the Power Walks programme brings to life the Actual RealityOS data, highlighting issues around social housing, low wage work, histories of resistance and the accessibility of the city. The three walks and a tour have been created in conversation with campaigns, community groups, and organisations local to the areas surrounding the Serpentine, and will take place throughout the duration of Hito Steyerl's Power Plants exhibition. Each walk and tour tell a story of the hidden and not so hidden inequalities from the point of view of those most affected.
