Big Issue North’s article on our work in prison with families

On 16 December 2019, Big Issue North ran an article on our work with men at HMP Liverpool and their families. Deborah Mulhearn’s article brilliantly evokes the sounds and emotions of these projects:

“The prison chapel at HM Prison Liverpool is a large and lofty room at the top of the old Walton Gaol. It’s a space that must hold some heartbreaking stories within its grim Victorian walls. But charity Good Vibrations has brought it to life with an unusual music project that fills it with the joyful sound of the gamelan, an Indonesian percussion orchestra …”

We are running family gamelan projects across England over the next five years, with funding from organisations such as The National Lottery, Arts Council England, The National Foundation for Youth Music, Evan Cornish Foundation and The Bromley Trust. These projects aim to support people in prison with their desistance journeys by helping them improve relationships with their families.
