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.”

EASTMOOR YOUNG OFFENDERS UNIT
Each week for over a year Stretch artist Chris Sherwin has been working with young men at Eastmoor. Chris runs art workshops with the young men and there has been a real buzz around work that has been produced. A great way to bring the art work together to share with people and celebrate the creativity of these young men is through a calendar. The 2013 calendar was brilliant and we already have a few photos from the 2014 calendar . Check out this sneak peak....
