“Such a creative approach … a worthwhile process”
– Northern Ireland Prisoner Ombudsman, Tom McGonigle
Birobites was a major inter-generational project facilitated by Anna Morvern who was awarded a public tender to design and implement an expressive writing project involving two groups of prisoners at HMP Hydebank Wood prison outside Belfast and senior citizen visitors to the prison.
The project took place in 2015, culminating in a joint writing session combining all the groups in the prison chapel.
