Freedom Arts offers people on court orders in the Justice system, with drug related offences, an alternative rehabilitation program.

 

We provide a safe, non-judgemental, creative environment where people undergoing difficult times can work with artists, and practitioners, and feel at home.

 

Lead artist Caroline Amos works with people who are on parole, probation, home detention, and court mandated diversion orders with non-violent offences through Community Corrections.

Freedom Arts is a strengths-based program that works with individuals to help them build on their existing skills and to learn new ones. Workshops are run by a variety of practising artists and technicians in residence to support the creative environment, to assist participants to build confidence, and prosocial skills.

The first of its kind in Australia

 

Starting in 2021, this 4-year pilot project in partnership with Community Corrections - a section of The Department of Justice, Tasmania - is the first of its kind in Australia. 

The project is being evaluated by a professional social researcher, and the final report will be published thanks to a partnership with Anglicare Tasmania. 

The benefits for participants of Freedom Project include:

  • Be inspired to learn and practice new skills in a variety of creative arts practices, including creative thinking and techniques in making art 

  • Experience positive feelings of success and achievement 

  • Form and maintain new positive relationships 

  • Develop pathways to engagement with the broader community and lifelong learning.

We want to thank Anglicare Tasmania and Bethlehem House for their support of this project.
