Safe Ground - Using drama to educate prisoners and young people at risk in the community


Koestler Gold Award

Our GROUNDation Poetry Project won a Gold Award under the ‘Arts Projects’ category as part of this year’s Koestler Awards for art made in detention.

The Koestler received over 8,500 pieces of writing, music, film, fine art and design for the 2015 awards, which were judged by industry professionals.

Safe Ground submitted the anthology ‘Home’ as well as photographs and links to the videos created during the project.

This was made possible by the contribution of the men in HMP Wandsworth, and people from the local Wandsworth community who ultimately created the poetry, which is now prized more publically.

Thank you for all your efforts.
