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

Project Tahi

Project Tahi is an opportunity to try out different art forms with different artists, in a beautiful community space with other women.

 

This programme uses creative arts practice such as photography, creative writing, clay work and music as a non-threatening, strengths-based approach to self-empowerment, community connectedness and wellbeing.

 

Participants learnt more about themselves and the creative process through March and April 2021.

“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.”
