The book project by children of people in prison about their lived experience led by Kids’ Own Publishing in collaboration with IPRT and Bedford Row Family Project is now underway with the children! This project offers children the opportunity to collaboratively create a book reflecting their lives and experiences.

Kids’ Own Publishing wrote about the first activity of outdoor art:

With the sun shining bright, participants had a fantastic time getting creative in the beautiful weather. Led by Kids’ Own Publishing’s experienced associate artists Mary Branley and Maree Hensey, who have been with Kids’ Own for a combined total of nearly 40 years, the project sparked plenty of imagination among the group. They chatted about positive things while working on their art pieces, creating a lively and supportive atmosphere.

The support from the Bedford Row team, including workers Terry and Annette, as well as manager Alison, was crucial to the project’s success. Their help ensured that everyone felt encouraged and included throughout the day.

As they look back on a wonderful week, both the artists and participants are excited about the next session. With such a great start, there’s no doubt that more fun and creativity are in store for future projects.
