A Creativity Special - How Social Justice & The Arts Combine

Now Criminal has been published in all formats, I'm starting to focus on learning new writing skills. In the process of researching writing for screen, stage & new media, I've found some brilliant organisations to look out for this week.

What I'm Watching -

Synergy Theatre Project inspire change through groundbreaking work across theatre and the criminal justice system.

He Said She Said 'fuses dialogue, verse and drill exploring how social media platforms can be used and misused to share information and escalate conflict'.

Work in the Arts or Media?

Media Trust works in partnership with the media and creative industry to give marginalised groups and young people a stronger voice. They encourage the media and creative industry to share their time, knowledge and creativity to benefit charities, under-represented communities and young people.

What I'm Listening To -

How have I not heard Evolving Prisons podcast before? Now I have, I'm binge listening to every epiode. This one is particularly good, with Ella & Harriet from Glasshouse Theatre talking about their experiences working in prison and using the arts to make meaningful change.

Exhibition I Wish I Could Visit -

I'm not in the UK, but I might buy a ticket anyway, to be in with a chance of winning an artwork. On 31st Koestler Arts will be hosting 'Postcards from Prison'.

It brings together more than 150 artworks made by major British artists and artists in prison.

An Event Ticket includes a guaranteed win of one of the postcard-sized artworks on display in the lottery draw, plus an invite for two to attend our event at the spectacular Art Workers’ Guild on 31 May at 6.30-8.30pm.

That's all for today. If you know of any other arts organisations doing great work, please let me know! If you want to know more about me, just Click Here.
