Working in a range of different mediums, from apps to zines to films and photography, their artworks have resonated with people up and down the country, from policymakers at Holyrood to school groups and conference goers.
Being a part of KIN has shaped the lives of many of the young people involved, but their focus is not on any one person’s journey. Working to create social change, they want to alter the landscape for young people in the future who are affected by family imprisonment. As one KIN member pointed out, their vision to challenge stigma and offer support ‘is more powerful than our individual stories’.
“… you take yourself out of your comfort zone when you do new stuff like spoken work, writing poems. Obviously we all know we’ve been through the same thing but like getting our experience out there without saying what our experience is, is really good.”(KIN young person)
