Voices from Prison

28 July 2021 – 28 July 2021

Over the last year women in prison have become more invisible than ever. During lockdown women in prison have been locked in cells for up to 23 hours a day with visitation and education programmes suspended. 

Voices from Prison is a creative writing project inviting women from all 12 women’s prisons to create work in this moment, amplify their words and let their experiences be heard.

Inspired by a project of the same name from 1987 uncovered in our archive but brought into the present, we will be hearing from women about Life during Covid, Women's Voices, Life in Prison and Hope. A panel representing Clean Break's community will be selecting pieces to be published online and showcased at this event. 

Join us at this special celebration event for the project and the incredible creative work of women in prison in the face of adversity. The event will explore the future of women's prisons with performances of a selection of the work by a cast of actors and Member artists and an insightful panel discussion.
