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.”

Our workshops are an opportunity for wāhine to try out different art forms with different artists, and other women. Participants will learn more about themselves and the creative process.
Home Ground is a creativity and wellbeing programme for women who are in the justice system. Each programme uses creative arts practice, such as photography, creative writing, movement and music, as a non-threatening, strengths-based approach to self-empowerment, community connectedness and wellbeing.
