Art of freedom


Produce and publish two educational books (manuals) explaining and displaying different aspects of artwork in the prison. 
Artists involved in working in prisons need to go through proper education:  
– a different approach to work, 
-a different approach to the people they will encounter. 
Promote education in prisons, search for professional associates, the exchange of knowledge and the dissemination of good practice have been implemented in the European area for a long time. The transnational implementation of the project will use the specific knowledge and expertise off each partner.By educating the prison system’s expert staff about artistic activities, part of the scientific field of medicine and  psychology, it is one of the important lifelong literacy processes.
