About

After Unlocked was launched in 2010, we received support from Arts NSW to take to other centres. Dawn De Loas Correctional Centre is a minimum-security prison in Silverwater, New South Wales and in 2011, Sydney poet Gareth Jenkins and Red Room Company’s artistic director Johanna Featherstone ran poetry workshops with the inmates as part of the Red Room Company’s ongoing project Unlocked. Working closely with the inspirational teachers at the centre, we have found that the students relish the opportunity to express themselves through a new medium.
