Journey Through Campsfield

10/08/2009

In 2003, writer-in-residence Julia Hollander spent three months working with detainees at the Campsfield Immigration Detention Centre near Kidlington.

Working with the detainees, the residency provided the participants with the opportunity for a participatory creative endeavour where they could actively explore their own creative processes. Through various activities and exercises, participants developed their skills through expressive writing, oral communication and IT practises. Participants could express their life experiences and perspective, boosting their self-confidence. The project promoted greater understanding between the centre, the detainees, and the wider community.

The residency culminated in the production of a small booklet which included the detainees’ writings accompanied by black and white photographs. The booklet was launched along with a video screening of readings from ex-detainees.
