What we do
Participants work alongside the artist, experimenting with a range of art materials. Through drawing, painting, text and collage, individuals are encouraged and supported to enjoy the process and express themselves freely. Working as a group, in pairs and individually, everyone creates a piece of artwork to take away. In addition, work created in collaboration with the artist can be used to transform spaces inside the insitution.
Through a shared sense of purpose and hope, the artwork sessions have helped to reduce incidents of suicide, self-harm and offending/reoffending inside and outside the prison environment.
