For the first time ever, we held a Justice Creates course behind locked bars in 2016. About 50 inmates of the Pollsmoor juvenile center near Cape Town could discover their own creative talents. This is what the participants had to say about this experience:
T: I learned that I can do good things with my hands.
C: I learned that I am good in art.
M: I can create the things that come into my mind and it can be beautiful.
S: I learned that God gave me talent.
T: The one thing I learned is to love myself.
T: I like doing art because this course meant something big to me, and I hope to do more.
T: I learned to believe in myself and to love one another as you love yourself.
C: I learned to be honest.
E: I like art more now because I did see what talent I have.
