Scottish Justice Matters journal has today published its 3rd issue – a fascinating edition, focusing specifically on Arts and Justice. The whole journal is well worth a read, and can be downloaded here: Scottish Justice Matters March 2014
I (Alison) was asked to contribute an article reflecting on Hot Chocolate Trust, an organisation I was involved in setting up some 13 years ago. While not a criminal justice organisation, Hot Chocolate is a creative community-based organisation pursuing social justice in Dundee city centre with young people. It was a real privilege to be asked to commit some thoughts on Hot Chocolate to paper, asking questions of how we can learn from its ground-up, community approach as Vox Liminis and others develop arts work in the criminal justice sphere.
