The Pathways Programme and Networks

As development worker on The Pathways Programme I worked with women experiencing challenging situations in their lives providing recreational (rather than therapeutic) art and different ways to engage with contemporary culture. Women residents of a medium secure unit were involved in running the programme of artists' workshops, exhibitions visits and showing their own work in the unit and beyond.

Developing into Networks (2012 – 2013), this work set up a partnership with a range of criminal justice and mental health organisations, creating cultural and digital arts projects with contemporary women artists. Winner of the 2013 Breakthrough National Positive Practice Mental Health and Criminal Justice Award.
