Welcome to our October show for 2018

Again, apologies for the delay.

If anyone can offer their blogging services we’d greatly appreciate it!

For now – here’s the content from our October Show

Going Back

Both Christine and Fiona have recently gone back to prison – but as program providers, bringing their lived prison experience to enhance their delivery. But how did it feel to go back inside?

 

Public speaking

Seeds of Affinity have made so many public appearances lately, it’s hard to keep track.

 

Adelaide Women’s Prison Radio Project

In September Charlotte, Heather and Christine began a radio project in the Adelaide Women’s Prison, to produce audio materials aimed at supporting new arrivals. Here’s how it’s been going so far.

September content

 

 

Apologies for the lateness of this post – but here’s the links to all of the content from our September episode.

It’s so busy at Seeds of Affinity and Radio Seeds at the moment that we’re going to have to cut a few ‘podcasting’ corners for a while!

Enjoy!

Art and Healing at the Alice Springs Correctional Centre.

The Kunga Stopping Violence Project is a through-prison support organisation in Alice Springs for Aboriginal women. One of their services is a four week trauma-recovery workshop, for women getting ready to leave prison. In this story the Kunga women at Alice Springs CC speak about the importance of art to their recovery and journey forward.

The latest news from Ruby Unit, AWP

We report from the Ruby Unit at Adelaide Women’s Prison and speak to the latest group of women living there, in the prison’s newest unit that opened earlier this year and is special-purpose designed to be non-smoking and programs oriented. How have things changed since last time we visited? Linda, Chris and Mel talk about how is the prison coping with current overcrowding issues and their concerns about housing women on remand in watch-houses rather than prison.

Welcome to the Kunga Stopping Violence Program

Heather had the honour of spending a few days with the Kunga women in H-Block at the Alice Springs Correctional Centre.

Here they introduce us to the program.
