Spectrum for 8 November 2015 - Waikeria Prison

From Spectrum, 12:10 pm on 8 November 2015

Earlier this year, Waikeria Prison won a Corrections Leadership award from Arts Access Aotearoa for facilitating activities including kapa haka, whakairo (carving), music, poetry, raranga (weaving) and painting. These pursuits are all integral to the inmates' recovery and reintegration experience at Te Ao Marrama. Amelia Nurse spent a day at the prison. She was welcomed as whanau and learned what the arts have come to mean in the lives of the inmates and the staff.
