More space available at Prison Radio event
Prison Radio’s sold out development day now has extra tickets available for anyone interested in attending.
Inside Prison Radio takes place at the Southbank Centre in London on Thursday 18 January. It’s an opportunity to learn more about Expert Citizens, and how they are changing the way we produce media.
Every year, the global prison radio community comes together in London to share knowledge, stories and experiences at the Prison Radio Association’s Inside Prison Radio event.
Organisers told us what’s happening this year: “This year we’ll be focusing on the voices who appear on National Prison Radio every day – those people with lived experience of prison. They may have served a sentence, they may have a son or daughter behind bars. Perhaps they work on the wings, or maybe they’ve been touched by crime and the justice system in some other way.
“Radio is an exciting medium that creates the most intimate, personal connections between audience and presenters. This is why it’s such a powerful tool to use in prisons.”
72% of people in prison choose to listen to National Prison Radio, and tune in for an average 11.4 hours every week.
