Critical thinking and critical awareness is important within the politically loaded environment of a prison.

Working with Hannah Hull (artist, researcher and coach), this course will explore whether the integrity of creative work is compromised when it becomes an instrument of prisoner education, and if it is, how you be able to tell?

The course will help identify participant’s critical position and where they would be best placed to realise their aims within the prison system.

In addition, the level and type of support provision from the prison service will be reviewed; guidance on how to navigate and negotiate within the prison system’s complex terrain while you remain independent; and advice on ways to instil critical thought in prisoners, both during and beyond the time-frame of an intervention.

“I feel that the content, the teaching method and the group dynamic has really opened me up to a way of thinking and working that will stay with me for a long time.” – Student 

If this course is for you please book as soon as possible as places are limited.

Applicants are required to be available for all six sessions (3 November – 8 December 2014).
