How to support

We hope that Home Ground provides the foundation and the space for women in the justice system to feel valued and have a true sense of self. To have a voice, to be heard and understood.

Our promise is to enable women to learn about themselves and their life stories through creativity. We want women to have a better understanding of themselves so they can address their challenges and map out their future path.

With a deeper understanding of our stories and therefore ourselves, we are more able to weave back into our community. By society and our community learning and understanding these stories, we are more able to welcome and support women to come home.

During a Home Ground project we create a public artwork displayed inside and outside prison that talks about the needs of women with lived experience of the justice system.

Through our collaborations we create a dynamic collective of artists to amplify the voices of women affected by the justice system and start community conversations.

If you support Home Ground, you will be supporting women to advocate for themselves, have access to the arts and create social change.
