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.
