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.”

HORIZONS
Horizons is a two year project funded by the Big Lottery. Working with residential care homes of local authority Looked After Children and secure units for young offenders, we will be delivering programmes that use museums, galleries and heritage as inspiration but can respond in any artistic media. The project aims to deliver Trinity and Guildhall Arts Awards over two years.
