A recent collaboration between Talbot Rice Gallery - the University's art gallery - and HMP Shotts prison has given inhabitants a chance to attend talks and immersive, practical workshops.
Initiated and led by Dr Patricia Allmer, with Dr Emily Goetsch and Cara Samuels, the programme allowed students theoretical, historical, and practical engagements with different ECA subject areas including Art, Design, History of Art, and Music.
