Due to circumstances beyond my control, I will not be posting any more arts project blogs until after the performances. This is not what I want to do but, unfortunately, the tabloid press have done their thing and sensationalised what we are trying to achieve. Watch out for the next ‘media’ blog. There is now potential for Prison Service or Governmental departments to protect themselves from any perceived negative publicity by pulling the plug. As this action would not just affect me but every prisoner and member of staff who have put in so much work, I have to apply a little circumspection.
I’ll update you on the rest of the journey in October.
Be happy, be safe (and wish us luck).
