So, it's official: Dilly Arts is thrilled to confirm that we have been awarded £25,000 from Arts Council England for a wonderfully exciting project which we have asked Open Clasp Theatre Company to come on board to work with female prisoners at HMPYOI Low Newton to help tell their stories. The women's stories will be created into a theatre production to tour the male prisons in the North East and we hope will culminate with a public performance at Live Theatre Newcastle in early summer 2014. Funding is still pending to enable us to further develop this work into a short animated film. To follow the progress of this and other Dilly Arts projects follow us on Facebook or go to – and don't forget Dilly Arts Founder-Director Alison Redshaw will be a key note speaker talking about her work with arts in prisons at Baltic on 15th November at the Exhibiting and Celebrating Enrichment conference for which there are still some delegate places remaining.
