A Body of Writing Exhibition

Date: 
Saturday 7th October 2017 to Sunday 5th November 2017
09:00 - 17:00
West Cloister

As part of the Memory and Identity theme, the Cathedral is continuing the partnership with HMP Erlestoke by commissioning a project that uses creative writing to explore questions of identity.

Led by creative practitioners Lewes Lit Live, the prisoners’ work will be exhibited in the cloisters, giving voice to those whose stories are rarely told or heard. The men will have an opportunity to make a statement to the world outside about who they are, what made them who they are and what they aspire to become. Woven into the design of the installation will be prisoners' tattoos, an ubiquitous mode of self-expression.
