Music in Prisons: Defining a Successful Project

Sarah Doxat-Pratt (University of Nottingham) discusses music projects in a prison context.

The idea that music has the power to transform is as old as music itself. In recent years, this idea has been outworked most evidently in the various musical interventions and projects taking place around the world intended to bring about individual and social transformation.

Sarah Doxat-Pratt (University of Nottingham) will look specifically at music projects in a prison context, raising questions regarding who defines success in this area. Drawing on over a year of fieldwork with the Irene Taylor Trust, her paper will discuss the motivations and success criteria of prisoner participants themselves.
