Previous Prison Projects

Since 2004, Theatre Nemo has set up various programmes in prisons across Scotland. Projects in this area focus on bridging the gap between prison and community.

Theatre Nemo engages with the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in prison. They feel they do not have any control over how they think or feel. By using the arts to engage and stimulate prisoners’ natural creativity, work in prisons can produce amazing results.

One of the things that the prisoners tell us repeatedly is how having a purpose, being able to use their experience to help others, makes them feel useful, needed and part of something good.
