Hope Through Dialogue (2017-2019)
I was invited to assist with the project ‘Hope Through Dialogue’ by the artist Hester Reeve. This pilot project sought to examine the experience of transition from a CAT C to CAT D prison using Bohm Dialogue as a research methodology. We found ourselves, as artists, in dialogue with the staff, prisoners, culture and environment of HMP Sudbury, allowing meaning making and cultural cohesion to emerge through dialogue and ‘cultural agitation.’
Below is a series of reflective journal pages that illustrate my experience throughout the project.
