The Standing Proud Writer’s Group’s contribution for Hate Crime Awareness Week for Cheltenham LGBT+ Partnership. BSL performance by Ciaran Stewart.

A collaborative poem written by participants of our workshops, during the 2020 lockdown.

Holly Winter-Hughes shares the anthology produced as a result of the workshops Holly and Giovanni ‘Spoz’ Esposito ran for Severn Arts and Worcester Probation Service. These pieces were written by the participants of Severn Art’s ‘Inspiring Futures through the Arts’ programme. The project was devised as a way of using art and therapeutic writing to empower people in the criminal justice system to turn their lives around. Severn Arts very much wish to thank the project funder, the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner and the workshops host and partner, Warwickshire and West Mercia Community Rehabilitation Company.
