‘Our Time’ Calendar 2019

Artwork by women artists at HM Prison Send


£7.00 a copy + £1.30 p&p

Please email
to order.

The artworks featured in this Calendar were created for the ‘Our Time’ exhibition, organised and curated by a group of women artists within HMP Send in June 2018.

These artists all take part in weekly art workshops within the prison, delivered by Watts Gallery Trust as part of its Big Issues outreach programme and funded by the Michael Varah Memorial Fund (MVMF).

Profits from sales of the ‘Our Time’ Calendar will all go back into the programme. This social enterprise model is giving the women artists transferable skills that might lead them into training or employment on release.
