The LADO P project was created out of the desire to give inmates and their families different instruments of artistic expression to help them communicate with each other and, at the same time, create artistic works to raise the awareness of people to their situation. The target audience comprises the inmates of the Caxias Prison with short prison sentences or who are almost finished serving their sentence, and their families.

Writing and theatre workshops will be held over the course of three years to equip inmates with additional tools to aid in their prison integration or social reintegration, through the creation of artistic works. They start by writing poems and building sets and then move on to video correspondence between them and their families, the production of a documentary series and, finally, a film.



The “Lado P” of confinement

From the Prison Establishment of Caxias, in Lisbon, we have been receiving poems, drawings and testimonies of a reality that, despite being enclosed, has also suffered the effects of the pandemic. This is another project supported by the PARTIS initiative.
