‘Plus 1’ event
Part of the Creating Spaces for Change project
Friday 10th June, 12.30-5pm
Grassmarket Project, http://grassmarket.org
Our final Creating Spaces for Change event aims to create space to imagine, debate and mobilise progressive justice values for a progressive Scottish justice system.
Funded through the Scottish Universities Insight Institute, event 3 continues our aim to create spaces for change in Scottish criminal justice and in responses to offending behaviour.
The event will include creative contributions from Professor Lesley McAra, Scottish Storytelling Centre, Vox Liminis, Positive Prison? Positive Futures and Oliver Escobar; as well as space to eat, think, talk, listen and act together.
As before, this is an event for all of us. Our aim is to create space for interested actors and voices to come together, build alliances and respond to the growing mood in Scotland for political, cultural and institutional change in relation to Scottish justice matters. Participants should come with ideas and be prepared to take forward actions in their own areas of influence to enact change.
The event is billed as a ‘plus1 event’ reflecting our aim to extend the conversation. So please extend this invitation to someone who you think has something to contribute, and be sure to get them to register too.
