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
STRETCH STORY BOX is an ongoing digital story telling project, inspired by the CDS that started with the Scottish Museum Service last year and has travelled to Norway and now is in the capable hands of NIACE who are funding our continued work.

Sabine Zanker

"We strive to encourage the women to develop and grow and learn in prison so that they do not regard the time spent in prison as a lost time. The digital story telling workshops help the women to develop the necessary self confidence to reflect on their lives and develop some ambitions."
