Jailbirds: Lessons from a Women's Prison

Mim Skinner

Date and time

Festival Hub


From 2014-2017, Mim Skinner worked inside prison as an art teacher. She now runs the women's project for the charity Handcrafted, helping women reconnect to community, housing and recovery from addiction through creativity. She is also a co-founder and director of community interest company REFUSE, which works to intercept food that would otherwise go to landfill. Jailbirds is a fascinating, often uplifting, sometimes sad account of the unique world that exists inside and the stories of the women imprisoned there.
Chaired by Terry Waite CBE.
