Episode notes

In Chapter 7, Lynn chats to students of the Wheatfield Prison Education Centre about life, music, art and education. The school in Wheatfield is brimming with talent, creativity and learning. For lots of the men there, the first time they ever held a musical instrument or got to try different types of arts and crafts was in the prison system. This special episode highlights the importance of creativity and opportunity in life, and how it can be a tool for people to find and connect with their true selves. More than ever this chapter is jam packed full of music performed by the students of Wheatfield Prison Education Centre.
