A studio project
Studio Projects represent a major undertaking for my design practice. Years of ethnographic & primary research provide the starting point for our co-creative conversations. Studio Projects are self commissioned and will result in a sustainable social enterprise or initiative that provides impact and longevity.
The UK has a re-offending rate of circa 64% costing the government £15bn per year.
Design as a Conversation
My process is a simple one. I view Design as a conversation, one where I invite everyone who is occupying the problem space to talk about failure, to experience empowerment, and together, co-create the space for change to take place. Inhouse Records is an example of an outcome from a conversation about re-offending. A conversation that included all who occupied the problem space.
Inhouse Records launched
InHouse Records is a multi award winning, rehabilitative, service, operating in multiple UK prisons and on the outside too, increasing positive behaviour in prison and significantly reducing re-offending on the outside.
We are devoted to the building of relationships and the capacity to maintain and nurture relationships. In doing so ALL our participants and graduates will not only become better skilled in their tasks for the label in prison but on the outside are able to forge stronger relationships, wider networks that can upwardly spiral mobility and reclaim equality.
