“Inmates discover artistic freedom”

12th August 2009

David Batty from the Guardian reports on the Freedom of Art exhibition at St. Pancras Hospital, London, displaying art by prisoners from Pentonville Prison.

The artists have attended Pentonville Prison's daycare activity centre, which is a pilot scheme run jointly by Islington NHS foundation trust, NHS Camden and the Prison Service. It offers an alternative education to programme to inmates with severe mental health problems. They can pursue art, pottery, yoga, massage and cookery, as well as literacy and numeracy.
