Friday 5th September - Saturday 6th September 2014 - Booking Form

The Cred-Ability project is funded through the EU’s Leonardo Transfer of Innovation programme for the transfer of a training programme for artists to work in prisons. The programme was developed in the UK by SEEDS for Growth, the Prison Arts Foundation of Northern Ireland and The College of Teachers (TCOT) and has been successfully piloted by partners in three other European countries: the aufBruch theatre company in Germany, the Lithuanian University of Educational Studies, and the Latvian Culture College. It has recently been awarded international accreditation through TCOT and the first artists are due to achieve accreditation this autumn.

The conference aims are:

• To launch its internationally accredited training programme

• To share examples of effective practice developed by artists and educators from across Europe, including Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Northern Ireland and England

• To debate key issues relating to prison arts with a panel of international experts

• To identify the creative potential of inmates through an exhibition of prisoner art by the Prison Arts Foundation and Not Shut Out, the largest magazine for prisoner arts in the UK

• To present performances, workshops and films reflecting the role of arts in European prisons
