Inside Rimutaka and Arohata prisons, prisoners are producing extraordinary written work, facilitated by the Write Where You Are Collective. We offer you a unique opportunity to participate with invited guest writers and prisoners in this interactive workshop event and listen to rarely heard voices.

The ballot for Prison Voices is now closed. Thanks to all who have entered. 

All ballot entrants (whether successful or not) will be advised of the outcome of the ballot by email by 14 February. Full ticket purchase and event details will be provided to successful ballot winners at this time.

Successful ticket holders will catch the Writers & Readers bus from outside Te Papa to Rimutaka Prison in Upper Hutt, and attend one of two simultaneous sessions with male or female prisoners, coordinated by Pip Adam, William Brandt, Rajorshi Chakraborti, Gigi Fenster and other members of the Write Where You Are team.

In association with The Write Where You Are Trust, Arts Access Aotearoa and the Department of Corrections
