Moving (swiftly) on… Why should anyone care about arts in prisons?

Speakers include Sarah Colvin and Preti Taneja (School of Arts and Humanities, Cambridge), Anna Herrmann (Clean Break), Andy Watson (Geese Theatre Company), Alex Wheatle (writer), Andrew Wilkie (National Prison Radio), and Loraine Gelsthorpe (Professor of Criminology, Cambridge). An audience discussion will be chaired by Alison Frater (National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance). The event is part of the University of Cambridge’s Festival of Ideas.
