For those of you that don’t know Jordan has been in and out of jail over the past year. I should add it’s because she’s making a doco in Junee Correctional Centre. The doco is focused on the unique Cultural Centre at Junee. It offers a perspective on the positive impacts cultural and creative activities have on inmates.
A couple of weeks ago we hosted a private screening of a teaser of the doco. After watching the teaser we asked the crowd to put us on the spot and they didn’t disappoint.
There were plenty of thought provoking questions and impassioned fist pumping that you’ll have to imagine (mostly from Jordan). So if you’re wondering what prison could be like in Australia you might want to take a listen and get some answers.
Note: Many inmates surveyed during the production of the doco said that Junee Correctional Centre is the best jail in their experience and it’s not what all jails are like. So in many ways the doco isn’t representative of typical jail life in NSW but it does offer a glimpse at what jail could and should be like if we want to reduce recidivism.
