This event coincides with the launch of Celebrating Success, an evaluation of the work of Cleanbreak undertaken by research staff at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama funded by Creativeworks London Creative Voucher scheme. It brings together academics from the fields of criminology, psychology and applied theatre. The event features research papers focusing on women who have experience of the criminal justice system and arts projects.

Marie Hutton is a criminologist and currently a post-doctoral research fellow on the ESRC funded research project ‘Breaking the Cycle: Prison Visitation and Recidivism in the UK’ project at the University of Birmingham. This three year interdisciplinary project will provide a new perspective on prison visitation and its relationship to the highly topical issue of recidivism.

She is the principal investigator on the ESRC Enrichment activities?
