Have you been affected by the imprisonment of a family member?
The KIN project and looking for young people aged 14-24 years old who have experience of a family member being in prison.
A partnership project between Vox Liminis and Families Outside, KIN is a new step in opening up the conversation in Scotland around what young people experience and may need when a member of their family is imprisoned.
30,000 children and young people experience the imprisonment of a family member each year in Scotland. The ideas, perspectives and imagination of young people themselves are critical in ensuring that the best possible opportunities and routes of support are open to young people at the right times.
KIN is a group of young people from across Scotland that have been affected by family imprisonment. Throughout the year the KIN team are collaborating with specialist artists from many different mediums to create artworks and resources to speak out about what it means to lose a family member to the prison system. During the year the KIN team are supported to travel across the country to meet together for residential weekends and day meets where they collaborate as an artistic collective.
So far they have collaborated with writers, documentary makers, illustrators and theatre professionals.
