Art-making, gifting and solidarity in restorative justice processes
Continuing our exploration of restorative justice and the arts, Dr Clair Aldington will be sharing her research and experiences as an artist and practitioner incorporating art-making and gifting into restorative justice processes.
Clair is an artist, designer, and restorative practitioner and researcher. She was trained by Oxfordshire Youth Offending Service and Thames Valley Police as a Restorative Justice practitioner in 2002 and worked for six years with Oxfordshire Youth Offending Service. Clair also served as the Creative Arts Development Worker in Youth Justice with Oxfordshire and West Berkshire Youth Offending Services.
In 2007, she moved to Shetland, Scotland, and co-founded Space2face creative restorative practices organisation which became an independent charity in 2016. She is now their Director-Practitioner.
She has recently completed a PhD in Restorative Justice and Design which examined the role of art-making, gifting, and solidarity in restorative justice processes. As an artist she has undertaken workshops and residencies in schools, women’s refuges, an immigration removal centre and a prison.
Her research and practice interests are in the role of making and gifting in times of transition, harm and conflict, particularly in the aftermath of crime.
We will end the event with an opportunity for questions and discussion.
