Friday 08 March: Exploring Self-expression Through Art
Personal names and tattoos take on new meanings for inmates who are often seen as numbers and statistics. This workshop will involve designing and embroidering an initial of your choice in the style of a prison tattoo while exploring the history of self-expression through art with Mary Broddle. Suitable for all skill levels, including complete beginners.

Friday 15 March: The Power of Spoken Word
Explore the power of poetry and spoken word with poet Manjit Sahota. In this workshop you will be supported to create a poem that reflects your feelings and opinions of the 'Juvenile In Justice' exhibition. Manjit will guide you through the process of developing your ideas and thoughts and you will be encouraged to create your own poem to read or perform. This workshop is great for building confidence and expressing ideas and feelings.

Friday 22 March: Reclaiming Narratives and Challenging Stereotypes
With artist Yuxi Hou, create a collage using photographs from the Juvenile In Justice exhibition by Richard Ross. Reflect on the experiences and journeys of juveniles detained in the criminal justice system with a focus on reclaiming narratives and challenging stereotypes.

This workshop aims to foster a deeper understanding of the experiences of young individuals detained in the criminal justice system.
