Over 10 months, 41 people helped create the LandWorks TimeLine, including: LandWorks trainees, Plymouth University art students and staff, volunteers, LandWorks staff and visitors.

“I have gained a feeling of self-worth again and believe that the future holds great things for me”

 

“It will be a landmark for LandWorks – it’s an impressive structure”

 

“Big experience day, well enjoyed and many more to come. Taken pride of what I’ve done today – it’s amazing!”

 

“[It’s given me] a time to think, a time to laugh, and a sense of achievement”

 

– LandWorks trainees

100% of participants felt they’d made connections with new people through being involved with the art project

100% felt the local community would be brought closer to LandWorks as a result of the structure

100% were introduced to a new craft or skill

75% thought their involvement with the project allowed them to talk about and/or reflect on their situation

100% said their involvement with the project had allowed them to talk about and/or reflect on the publics perception of people in prison

“90% of LandWorks trainees have gone onto employment, and although there’s no concrete evidence to say this down to art, every one of them has engaged with Sarah and this project in some way”
