Venue : de nieuwe schuur De Nieuwe Schuur – Kracht van de kunsten

De Nieuwe Schuur, Burgemeester Buijsstraat 33, 5255 AB Herpt – Nederland

The Arts of Freedom project has focused on the education and training of visual artists for participation in projects involving work with prisoners and in prison, as well as the education of prison employees to raise their awareness of creative work.

We are delighted to present the two books which have been produced for this project :

Book 1 (Arts of Freedom, A collection of Practices and Ideas on Art in Prison) is for artists who are interested in working in prison, It aims to improve soft skills of visual artists for work (murals and art workshops) in prison

Book 2 (Arts of Freedom, A Necessity of Art in Prison) is for staff employed in the prison system to raise awareness of the importance and effectiveness of such projects not only for the prison community but also for the overall community itself. It showcases the effects of such projects including the therapeutic and aesthetic effects on the observer.

We will have copies of the books at this event as well as examples of art work from prisons in our partner countries (Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Spain, Netherlands).

We will also hear from some of the books’ authors and artists.

We look forward to showcasing this vibrant work as our project reaches its conclusion in September 2022.
