If you want to continue, imagine that you have with you a rucksack containing different items which might help you to explore the cell-spaces of this house. What does your rucksack contain? What assumptions and ideas do you have about those who are held unjustly?

You might like to use a notebook, write in a journal or upload thoughts to a blog to record any thoughts and ideas about what you expect from your visit.

Want to stay and explore?

From here, you can travel as a visitor through a number of pathways through the various cell-spaces finding out what it is like to be an inmate here.

The yellow journey will take you to spaces which are word and text based and you can interact with what people are saying and discussing about unjust imprisonment now.

The blue journey will take you into spaces which are focussed on bible study, prayer, worship, song and reflective story telling.

The green spaces will allow you to engage with pictures, external web and book resources, video clips and various activities, including a space for cooking and eating a meal.

The pink spaces offer suggestions for personal commitments, reflection, and following Jesus more closely. The final pink space is the space where you may or may not be allowed to leave where you can consider what you have learned, been surprised by, challenged by and assess how you might have changed.

You can mix and match your journey through the different spaces depending on your receiving permission to for what you would most like to explore, study or do.
