Prisons

We have been working in UK prisons since 2013 and have produced and recorded over 500 original tracks of music of various genres.

In prisons, we run a 36 hour intensive group-based project where learners are challenged to write, record and produce an original album of music.

Alongside the music, our projects support the personal development of our learners and give them the opportunity to gain a Prince’s Trust ‘Achieve’ Award which focuses on areas including teamwork, coping with pressure, mindset change and employability.

We aim to transform the attitudes and perceptions of our learners by showing them that they can contribute to positive projects, improve behaviour and be creative. We want to ensure that they benefit from our projects in a meaningful way that improves their well-being, confidence and helps them make better life choices in the future.

Our work in prisons has earned us a successful reputation and is recognised as a unique and ground-breaking intervention. Our work is proven to change attitudes of prisoners, reduce stress and improve overall mental health.

Our music has received approximately 70 Koestler Awards and some of our most recent partners have included HMP Bronzefield, ISIS YOI, HMP Chelmsford and HMP Thameside.
