Isabel Knowland and Arne Richards – Creativity in Prisons
February 14, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Working with prisoners to release their creativity.
Their approach and eclectic mix of musical styles, instruments and traditions lends itself well to projects that aim to promote inclusion and break down false barriers of perception. Their extensive experience of music projects in high security prisons has shown that music can have a transformative effect on inmates and has even helped to ‘turn around’ several offenders, now released, with whom the group still keeps in touch. “I think the impromptu concert on the exercise yard at lunch-time was sublime. I know that the final concert was a triumph and that all who attended the workshops throughout the week have been elevated in mood and emotion” HMP Shepton Mallet
