We recently needed to order some new copies of our songbook ‘A Picture of Me’. The fresh books arrived in the office last week, and gave us the excuse to revisit a very special project, which took place back in 2006. You can hear the title track here:
Our skilled music-team (Nick, Rex and Sara) were joined by writer Peter Spafford and artist Lizzie Coombes at HMP YOI Holloway to help a group of female prisoners to create a beautiful book and accompanying CD, which contained a powerful mixture of music and spoken word pieces. The team helped the group to explore issues surrounding imprisonment for women from their perspective, in their own words.
