STRETCH DIGITAL
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.”

STRETCH'S SUMMER SCREEN PRINTING WORKSHOPS 2012
On August the 6th and 7th, young people from a residential care home in Leeds attended a screen printing workshop at an artist’s studio where they could access a range of equipment , resources and expertise These workshops were a big challenge for the young creatives as they explored ways to create original designs for personalised t-shirts. The process of screen printing is requires high levels of concentration and attention to detail. The young people demonstrated really courage in their willingness to try new things and juggle the challenges of adapting their designs when were offered ways to improve their initial ideas.
