KIN was established in late 2015, bringing together a group with lived experience of familial imprisonment. The collective create art together as a way of making sense of their experience and creating new ways to talk about the issue.
When a young person is disconnected from both their family and society, there is a responsibility to address our own roles in this isolation; the art of KIN aims to draw us in to the experience, and send us out to make a difference. The collective create art together as a way of making sense of their experience and creating new ways to talk about the issue.
