Home Ground creates space for women in the justice system to pause, nurture hope, activate social change and create better lives for themselves and future generations.
On a Home Ground project, artists (inside and outside of prison) make creative works using dance, performance, photography, writing, painting and music to address the issues women and whānau face in the justice system.
“I love that I feel our ideas and opinions actually really mattered. That we got to create and present some amazing and authentic pieces.”
