Vox Liminis is playing a significant role in the rehabilitation of the criminal justice system in Scotland, by creating spaces where differently situated people communicate and connect in new ways through the arts, and can imagine a more positive and human future together.
- Distant Voices involves songwriting with prisoners, former prisoners, criminal justice practitioners (prison officers and social workers) and academics in workshops called The Vox Sessions – the songs are then shared widely
- KIN is a project designed in partnership with Families Outside, working initially with 10 young people affected by parent or sibling imprisonment to share their experiences by creating work with artists
- In Tune supports family relations while a parent is in prison through creative arts. In Tune (again with Families Outside) is a project that brings the imprisoned parent, their children and primary carer together for whole-family music making in prison
- Unbound is our weekly meal and creative making gathering for all involved in Vox Liminis, building community with differently situated people in the criminal justice system
All of this is based on a belief that rehabilitation and reintegration of offenders is only possible by working together with people with convictions, their families, criminal justice practitioners and other partners – building community and collaboration with perhaps unlikely collaborators.
