Episode notes

How do you build community after the criminal justice system has removed you from society to serve a prison sentence?  

Today’s episode of Recovering Community explores the work of Vox Liminis, a unique organisation, set up to find creative answers to questions about crime, punishment, reintegration, and community.

Vox is for people who have all kinds of experiences of criminal justice; from children with parents in prison, to academic researchers and social workers. It hosts a number of projects from its base in Glasgow’s Gallowgate, and in prisons across Scotland.

Anne Kerr meets 3 lynchpins of the Vox community; Fergus McNeill, Alison Urie, and Iain, to learn about the ways that creative work, embracing difference, and mutual support build the bonds of community, and the foundations for a life beyond prison.
