Holloway Prison Stories & Women's Building
We are delighted to launch a new section of the website, dedicated to bringing a vision of a Women's Building on the site of Holloway to life. We welcome submissions from anyone who would like to express why they feel that future development on the site of Holloway Prison should include a Women's Building. We want to invite people to reflect on how the heritage of the site might contribute to a future Women's Building.
In the coming months we hope to bring you a variety of visions and voices on the Women's Building, through art, writing, film and more. We would encourage people to use their imaginations to consider a Women's Building that exists in a world that prioritises social justice over criminal justice, that builds community not carceral solutions.
* Holloway Prison Stories welcomes the contributions off all voices cisgender, transgender, intersex and non-binary. While prisons are gender-binary institutions, we recognise that the people held in prisons comprise of many different identities. Our expectation of a Women's Building is one of inclusion and welcome for all.
We would like to thanks Rosa for their Voice from the Frontline fund and support of the Women's Building Group - a collaboration between Holloway Prison Stories & Reclaim Holloway.
