Future Fires 2010

Banji Ojo

Community arts project with ex-offenders

Banji’s project, Outside the Box, aimed to work with ex-offenders aged 25 and over and who had recently been released from prison to create a book of their poems and art work based on their personal experiences.

After extensive outreaching and networking activities, Banji worked with a group of participants associated with Nacro, an organisation that works with disadvantaged people, offenders and those at risk of offending, and which helps them find positive alternatives to crime and to achieve their full potential in our society.
