In May 2017, North London Sisters Uncut occupied Holloway Prison’s Visitors Centre, claiming the space for the local community. In this session, representatives from Sisters Uncut will talk about reclaiming Holloway Prison and explore ways to create radical community spaces.
Part of Echoes of Holloway Prison Exhibition & Events Programme
Holloway Prison has been an important landmark in Islington for over 150 years. Until summer 2016 it was the largest women's prison in Britain. Many well-known prisoners have been held at the prison, but there are voices which remain unknown and unrecorded.
This project run by Islington Heritage Services, seeks to capture stories of this highly significant place meaning that, even now it has gone, the voices and echoes of Holloway Prison will remain.
