The Art of Bridging

06 Nov 2021

The Art of Bridging is a new podcast series from the Distant Voices project!

Over the last four years, we‘ve been bringing people together to write songs in and around the Scottish criminal justice system. We set out to learn more about what it‘s like to come home after prison, and to try to build bridges through songwriting and creative practice.

In the Art of Bridging, the community of people around Distant Voices – all of whom are connected to the criminal justice system in different ways – share some of what we‘ve made and learned along the way. Whether you‘re a music-lover, a community organiser or a system changer, we hope you‘ll enjoy this mix of thought-provoking conversations and compelling, challenging and beautiful tunes.

In this final episode of The Art of Bridging, we recap on our journey so far, and acknowledge some of the challenges along the way and what we can learn from them. And then we reach the other side, the dry land – or do we? You’ll have to listen to find out.
