Stretch wins Big Lottery funding bid to develop its Digital Storytelling Programme!
The Inside Story
Current Project
After the success of the Stretch Story Box project and in direct response to an emerging need from the offending community we are luanching a new programme for the next 3 years with the aim of closing the 'digital divide' between prisoners and the rest of the community.
Digital story telling has been a real success and a really creative way to hear the true voice of the offending community. 
Nick Hardwick, HM Chief Inspector of Prisons, in the report Through the Gateway writes:

“We can’t go on with prisons in a pre-internet dark age: inefficient, wasteful and leaving prisoners woefully unprepared for the real world they will face on release. I have not met one prison professional who does not think drastic change is needed.”
From The Archives
We delivered an exciting and innovative project in HMP Askham Grange with Stretch artist Kay Goodridge. The theme was 'Landscapes' and we worked in partnership with the South Square Gallery in Bradford with a group of 10 female prisoners. We were able to work in the prison and out on location in Thornton.
