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.”

Current project


Home ground is running a free 3-day art workshop for women at Toi Pōneke Arts Centre in Wellington City.

Our 3-day workshops aim to provide a safe, nurturing space that encourages community well-being. 3 days of making art and Christmas presents! This will hopefully relieve a bit of the financial pressure around this time of year, and get us back to basics with the true spirit of this precious family time.


We will be working with awesome artists who will be there to share their knowledge and ideas!



Tuesday 29th November, Wednesday 30th and Thursday 1th of December

“I can’t fully express in words the impact that being listened to, heard, believed and understood has changed the way I do things in my everyday life.  What seemed simple has impacted and helped to resolve complexities in my life.


The ability to express without fear, judgment or harsh/negative criticism has allowed me to share and explore parts of me I’ve always had but never recognised.”
