hidden project

Sharon Miller, associate artist at Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock has led an innovative partnership with HMP Greenock designed to help young people at risk of entering the criminal justice system which will have a showing in the Visitors Room at the prison tomorrow afternoon.

The project, One Stupid Mistake?, offers young people already within the system the opportunity to take part in a restorative justice project for their local community, and the performance combines their talents with those of rapper Darren McGarvey, better known as Loki, hip hop dancer Ashley Jack and Recoat artists Amy Whiten and Ali Wylie.

The Hidden Project has been supported by Police Scotland and Inverclyde Council and documented by film artist Fraser Anderson for a documentary that will be used encourage young people away from risky behaviour and criminal activity.
