CONNECTING museum archives
with women in prison
methods creative workshops, co-produced portraits & films
funded by Arts Council England supported by Arts & Heritage
Through creative workshops, women in prison at HMP Askham Grange were invited to adopt a woman from the Ripon Prison and Police Museum archives and compare their lives and experiences. This process was captured in co-produced audio and portraits, merging past and present 'mug shots' to create links across time through shared experiences. The resulting installation is both moving and atmospheric.
