Two Sides

Two Sides





Two Sides was a project run by Music in Prisons at HMYOI Werrington in October 2012 with the help of writer Peter Spafford and artist Lizzie Coombes. It brought together young prisoners with family members to consider from both sides of the bars how their lives have been affected by imprisonment.

The spoken-word pieces and songs, accompanied by postcards designed by artist Lizzie Coombes, are a brutally honest testimony of their experiences.
