Collage of images from the Huakina exhibitionART IN A BOX: Huakina, an exhibition curated by The Learning Connexion, continues until 1 December so there’s plenty of time to see this exhibition of work by prisoner artists around New Zealand, alongside well-known guest artists such as John Walsh, Wi Taepa, Nigel Brown, Chris Ulutupu and Flox. It’s on at Expressions Whirinaki in Upper Hutt. All proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to Victim Support. For more info

About Arts in Corrections

The arts and creative expression can be a powerful tool in supporting the rehabilitation process of prisoners and their re-integration back into the community on release.

Arts Access Aotearoa receives funding from the Department of Corrections to provide an Arts in Corrections Advisory Service. There are 18 prisons from Invercargill through to Northland, and a remand centre in New Plymouth. In addition, Community Corrections manages approximately 30,000 offenders in the community.

Through this service, the Arts in Corrections Advisor: 

  • works with artists, community educators and groups so they can deliver effective arts programmes, workshops and residencies in prisons and in Community Corrections
  • facilitates three regional Arts in Corrections Networks
  • supports Corrections staff to design and implement effective arts plans for each prison
  • supports Corrections staff and volunteers so they can design and deliver effective arts projects, activities and events in prisons and in Community Corrections
  • provides advice and links supporting released prisoners to continue art-making in the community.

This section features news updates, events, opportunities and arts activities in prisons around the country. It outlines and profiles the community of people, groups and organisations using the arts to support rehabilitation and reintegration. It also provides research, guidelines and information about the role of the arts in Corrections facilities, both in New Zealand and internationally.

Chris Ulutupu is the Arts in Corrections Advisor, Arts Access Aotearoa. He works Monday to Wednesday. For information, advice and opportunities, please contact Chris (T: 04 802 4349 E: chris.ulutupu@artsaccess.org.nz).
