blue shores Prison
art project
A unique prison art pilot programme
conducted at the Central Aguada jail
in Goa to give a pre-selected group
of inmates a chance to execute
their prison terms in a meaningful
and creative way.
It established the idea that the
prison is as much about reform
as it is about punishment by
documenting positive behavioural
changes and exploring the
implications of this experiment.
“I believe in second chances.”
