Writers & Readers - Prison Voices

Rimutaka Prison, Upper Hutt, Wellington Region

THU 08 MAR 12:00 P.M. - 4:30 P.M.

Inside Rimutaka and Arohata prisons, prisoners are producing extraordinary written work, facilitated by the Write Where You Are Collective.

We offer you a unique opportunity to participate with invited guest writers and prisoners in this interactive workshop event and listen to rarely heard voices.

Tickets are limited to 80 places, and are available only by entering the ballot, which closes on 7 February.

Successful ticket holders will catch the Writers & Readers bus from outside Te Papa to Rimutaka Prison in Upper Hutt, and attend one of two simultaneous sessions with male or female prisoners, coordinated by Pip Adam, William Brandt, Rajorshi Chakraborti, Gigi Fenster and other members of the Write Where You Are team.

In association with The Write Where You Are Trust, Arts Access Aotearoa and the Department of Corrections.

Writers & Readers is part of 2018 New Zealand Festival.
