Good Vibrations in the Prison Service Journal

We are delighted to announce that an in-depth article about Good Vibrations has been published in a special edition of the Prison Service Journal which looks at the impact of the Arts in Prison.

Entitled “Music, Education and Opportunity”, the article has been written by our Executive Director, Katy Haigh and Dr. Laura Caulfield, Chair of the Institute for Community Research and Development at the University of Wolverhampton.

The article is a summary of the range of impacts our approach and use of gamelan music can bring about in prison settings and beyond.

It summarises the findings of the nine pieces of independent research of Good Vibrations which have been carried out over the years.  These research evaluations have consistently found positive outcomes for participants on Good Vibrations courses and have investigated the impact our interventions have had both with the general prison population and on women, older men, young offenders, and men convicted of sexual offences.
