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.”

PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS IN YORK
Drop- In Studio Photography at two hostels for homeless people in York.
We spent time talking to people who dropped in, looking at examples of photography and portraiture and thinking about how the participants would like to represent themselves in a photo.
The two hostels Arclight and Baseline opened their doors to us with a portable studio  and the people who lived there or who dropped in during the day were very willing to have their photos taken in a studio setting, and in deciding which photo of themselves they would be happy to have in a final poster.
