DIRT – Burning Salt EP Launch £12 Book now
As part of the project, Hannah Hull (Burning Salt) is artist-in-residence at Islington Museum. Hull has responded to Holloway’s stories with a series of songs, which will be released as an EP entitled ‘DIRT’.
This exhibition by Islington Museum explores the history and significance of Holloway Prison, the impact of its closure, and the memories of those who lived and worked there.
Until its closure in June 2016, Holloway Prison was western Europe’s largest women’s prison, holding over 500 inmates including both adult women and young offenders. Converted to a female-only establishment in 1902, the prison has housed women from all over Britain.
