Saturday 10th July - Sunday 7th November
How do you imagine going to prison would change your life?
This is an art exhibition highlighting the accomplishments of current and formerly incarcerated people.
Damien Linnane saw prison as an opportunity to pursue writing fiction and also teach himself to draw. He is now a published novelist and a contracted illustrator working on a project for Random House.
Exhibition period: Saturday 10th July - Sunday 7th November
The exhibition also explores the challenges inmates can often face inside, ranging from being denied education to disproportionate sentences. If you would like to hear about issues in prison directly from former inmates, you can listen to the Broken Chains Podcast, hosted by Damien Linnane and produced by Newcastle Libraries.
