I'm an artist and I've received grants. Want to know what I do with all that money? | Zoe Coombs...

Contrary to popular opinion, I don’t spend my grant money on lollies or trips to Disneyland. I’m supposed to, you know, have a budget

Last year as part of our large portfolio of work in North East prisons Dilly Arts devised and managed a project working with female prisoners in HMP YOI Low Newton designed to take their voices to male prisons and a public audience. Dilly Arts commissioned Open Clasp Theatre Co to work with the women to produce a piece of theatre that went on to become Key Change, toured to male prisons and sell out audiences at the Live Theatre Newcastle. We are delighted to announce that Key Change will be going to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year opening on 8th August! A huge thanks and congratulations to the entire team behind this stunning work - most of all to the prison staff who supported our vision and to the women who trusted our process and shared their stories which will now be heard by an even bigger, international audience! The animated films made by the women and male prisoners, working with artist Lindsay Duncanson and writer Richard W Hardwick as the vital second part of this project will be available to watch very soon on our website www.dillyarts.org.uk

Three MinutesSo there was a security camera, they leave with justa few cigarillos and a shove. If the badge in pursuitknew of their involvement or not, the wind was never even, never as easy as black and white.This is what I see: the urban streetsas barbed as wire - unequal, unsafe.But in my world, I'd rather paper over the anger,walk through murky mists, cling to fiction. Justice is a fiction of my mind: two black teenagersand a cruising police officer. *Get on the sidewalk*. An abrupt collision of path. A struggle, a gun is fired. Bullets meets flesh. The youths flee. Only to be gunned down animals. I think his hands were raised, swaying just like trees; a boy extending, begging for life. *I don't have a gun. Stop shooting me.* Why is it my mind tends to block out ugliness? Refuse to let reality sink in. This rot has been growing for ages, unchecked and can do nothing but snag and grow. Shoot. It has me imagining all kinds of violence happening there, here, in the name of the law, wherever there are black lives that matter. In another version, the black boy is asking for it.Shot in fear for life. He dies with his whole life in his hands.In protest, they can only burn and loot on their doors steps.Any where else, they'd be shot dead.
