There are 27,000 young people and children affected by family imprisonment in Scotland each year. When a young person is disconnected from both their family and society, there is a responsibility to address our own roles in this isolation; the art of KIN aims to draw us in to the experience, and send us out to make a difference.
In March we ran a piloted our Creative Experience workshops, the pilot for this strand of KIN engaged with with a diverse range of youth, volunteer and school groups. We engaged with 70 participants in the course of one month where we facilitated groups in a creative conversation surrounding family imprisonment and addressed the stigma this causes many young people. The Creative Experience workshops offer participants the opportunity to engage with the first three pieces of art that KIN have made and to then creatively respond.
