Transformation

Date: Tuesday, Sep 17 - Saturday, Sep 28
Venue: Alchemy 198

Works produced by prisoners and ex-offenders from HMP Leyhill near Bristol.

Using different media and styles, the artists were challenged to depict transformation and what change might look like when they are released, life as they knew it restored, hope and the future returned and a better or changed ‘person’ gets the opportunity to grow and have a new life.

Prodigal Arts is a charity that provides opportunities for talented prisoners and ex-offenders to produce and sell artwork created in their own voluntary time as part of their ongoing rehabilitation.

Prodigal Arts aim to bring transformation through art, making a positive contribution to society.
The project is based in Bristol and works in the region.

Sept 16-30, Alchemy 198, Gloucester Rd, BS7 8NU, Tue-Thur 5-11.45pm / Sat 2pm-12.30am. For more info, visit
