Music and Communication for Mothers and Young Children in Prison
  The objectives of the research workshops for the project, ‘Music and Communication for Mothers and Young Children in Prison’ are threefold;

1) to investigate current music practice in prisons between mothers and their young children that is not academically acknowledged and increase knowledge of this topic,
2) to organise a series of workshops with researchers and practitioners in Scotland, England and Wales and Portugal that can share knowledge of music making activities in this field and deepen understanding of this practice,
3) to develop international expertise in designing and applying for funding to carry out research with women who experience, or have experienced, prison with their young child incarcerated with them and their use of music as a form of communication.
