Restorative Justice and the Arts

Hello Everyone

Long time no blog, however that is not to say that it has not been a very busy and productive time.

Summer Arts College – We are excited to be able to tell you that Writing Wrongs has been successfully used as part of a Summer Arts College that supported nine young people through the Bronze Arts Award.  Resource Creatives used the Writing Wrongs programme with the Arts College for young people in Lancashire.  Writing Wrongs provided the framework for the restorative process that was embraced  by both staff and young people, the impact of which was noted in quality reports and maintained attendance on programme.

Here is a sample of some of the great work produced by the young people.

Koestler Trust – We are over the moon that an under 18 entrant to the Koester Trust Awards received the special under 18’s award in the craft category.  The theme was forgiveness, the young person had completed the Writing Wrongs Programme and created a fantastic piece of artwork (pictured) entitled ‘Mend my Heart’.

Here at Writing Wrongs we are working on the front line with practitioners and understand the cutbacks faced by many organisations.  Therefore, following consultation we are now able to offer cost effectiveness solutions to using the Programme.  Adil will be keeping everyone informed via social networking, phone and newsletters.
