We’ve teamed up with the National Justice Museum to put objects from the past into the hands of people of the present. This month, we took a matchstick violin created by prisoners to Adam Wood, Senior Promotions Manager at Rock City...
“I’m really surprised at how ornate it is. It’s inspiring to see something so colourful coming from what I imagine to be a rather ‘grey’ environment.”
“It’s intriguing to think about the situation in which the violin must have been created. Was it created by one member of the prison or multiple?”
“Was it in a class environment? Or did they collect matchsticks and make it in their cell? I guess we will never know.”
