Prison championing art

By James Latunji-Cockbill, Producer – Art at HMP Grendon

“Having the chance to exhibit my work whilst paying homage to the person that made it possible left me feeling elated. It is an opportunity I have never known in any other jail.”

This month, artist Dean Kelland’s residency at HMP Grendon features in an article in Inside Time written by one of the prison’s residents. The article is a survey of the project, looking in particular at the exhibition held at Grendon in January.

You can read the full article in the Comment section on page 19, here.
