Current Project
STRETCH DIGITAL
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.”

Photographic Workshops Askham Grange
The project involved a group of women prisoners at Askham Grange open prison. Our brief was to run workshops in the prison as well as visit exhibitions taking place at the Museum of Film Photography and Television in Bradford, now the National Media Museum http://www.nationalmediamuseum.org.uk/
The workshops were centred round at least two exhibitions “Lifetimes” by Julian Germain  and  “From One World to Another” by Raghubir Singh  at the National  Museum of Photography, Film and Television and “  “ by Georgina Starr at Leeds City Art Gallery.
