Graft in Flux

ARTLINK, 87 Princes Avenue, Hull, Hull, HU5 3QP

14 Apr - 28 Jun 2018

All ages

The HMP Humber Art Department, known as GRAFT Studio, is collaborating with Artlink on an immersive and interactive exhibition, focused on the changing landscape and the aspirations of those currently working and living in the secure prison units.

GRAFT’s ethos is to use art as a vehicle to improve confidence, grow self-esteem, and to incrementally transform individuals by engaging them in a pro-active intervention program. Elements and working practices from the Studio will be recreated to allow visitors to observe and take part in the environment, projects, techniques, and journey of HMP Humber’s students.

Work made by visitors will then be displayed as part of the evolving exhibition.

GRAFT aspires to offer individuals new creative thinking skills and professional development. They do this by providing a visual learning environment, programmes, courses, and therapy. Participants find confidence, self-esteem, and the realization that there is something to be gained from the acts of creating and giving back. When everyone is treated with mutual respect and commitment, we enrich others and create a safer, more inclusive community for everyone.

Preview evening: Fri 13 Apr, 6-8pm.
