I AM LADY UNCHAINED.
My name is Lady Unchained and I am a poet, a mentor, an award-winning broadcaster, a curator, a TedX speaker, a workshop facilitator, author and a radio host for National Prison Radio and I am on a mission to prove that there is #lifeafterprison.
"Behind Bars proves there is life after prison."
THE RETURN OF UNCHAINED NIGHTS!
18TH NOVEMBER 2021
The long awaited "Unchained Nights" has finally returned!
After two years of not being able to take to the stage live, we made a triumphant return TO OUR REGULAR VENUE AT Arts Admin, TOYNBEE STUDIOS.
WE SHOWCASED THE WORLD PREMIER OF "BUDDLEIA: THE UNCHAINED STORY." THE FILM WAS SHOT AND EDITED BY TRACY KIRYANGO, WHO ALSO COLLABORATED ON THE FILM-POEM "THE FORGOTTEN PEOPLE." THE 40 MINUTE DOCUMENTARY TRACES LADY UNCHAINED'S STORY, FROM THE GROUNDS OF HMP HOLLOWAY TO THE PRESENT DAY WHERE WE SEE THROUGH CONVERSATIONS WITH PEOPLE SHE HAS WORKED WITH THE IMPORTANCE OF PROVING THERE IS LIFE AFTER PRISON AND THE POSITIVE IMPACT LADY UNCHAINED'S ENCOURAGEMENT HAS HAD.
WE WERE ALSO DELIGHTED TO BE JOINED ON STAGE BY THE UNCHAINED ARTISTS, ALL OF WHOM HAVE LIVED EXPERIENCE OF THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM. THEY WERE ABLE TO DELIGHT THE AUDIENCE WITH THEIR TALENTED PERFORMANCES RANGING FROM POETRY, RAP, SINGING AND SONGWRITING.
We would like to thank all of those who were able to come and to those who were unable make it, do not worry, there's always the next event!
