Exhibiting and Celebrating Enrichment


As part of the ESRC Seminar Series, this session will consider how offender participants’ work is exhibited, performed, published and publicised.  It will showcase successful strategies used by organisations in publicising work to the wider public.  The impact of feedback on incarcerated artists and performers will be widely debated and the link between media attention and changes in policy making will be discussed.
