Theatre Nemo has a very well established and trusted relationship with the Scottish Prison Service particularly within HMP Barlinnie’s Day Care service.
Within our prison workshops participants begin to reduce their levels of aggression and develop more effective ways of communicating and self-expression. We help participants to discover their abilities and identify new opportunities and better life choices. It has been demonstrated that this turn plays a considerable role in reducing the risk of re-offending.
Prison workshops are generally made up of 2 two hour sessions a week over thirteen weeks. Activities consist of painting and collage, drama - trust and team work exercises, script-writing, drumming and animation.
