Description

Mapping Memory: Former Prisoners Tell their Stories is a project of Constitution Hill – the heritage precinct built around the Number Four prison complex that is now the home of the Constitutional Court. The project brought back former prisoners who were held in the Women’s Jail and Number Four and created the opportunity for them to give material form to their memories made fragile by the passage of time.

Former prisoners were assisted in taking photographs of the jail as well as in drawing their stories and recording oral testimonies in order to capture their memories. The material developed in this process forms the basis of this book and accompanying exhibitions at Constitutional Hill.
