Culture in captivity

At the beginning of Cultural eXchanges we'll face the difficult question: should the convicted be allowed to express themselves? Is it enough to imprision them physically or should we mentally imprison them as well ?

On Monday 28th Febuary Members of the Art Alliance will discuss whether prisoners should be allowed to speak out through art. Is it more important to provide a vocational skill with which they can use after rehabilitation or should prisoners be given, for lack of a better term a blank canvas ?
