‘Unlocked 2‘ – installation at the museum providing opportunity to get a sense of what life is like in prison and how art provides opportunities to maintain wellbeing.
This split-site exhibition at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery and Soft Touch Arts is the second in a series of three annual exhibitions as part of the Unlocked programme which has been created by men serving prison sentences at HMP Leicester and HMP Stocken, as well as those who have completed their sentences and returned to their communities.
Across the road at Soft Touch Arts participants have created a powerful and inspiring collection of artwork with personal testimonies about how art is helping to transform their lives.
