This Children of Prisoners Week (4th – 11th of September) Pillars is highlighting to the public, that Children of people in prison are children of promise and potential. This year’s theme is ‘making the invisible, visible’; giving our tamariki and rangatahi the space to be seen and heard for who they truly are.
This year, Pillars has partnered with The Beautification Trust to create a mural with children impacted by parental incarnation. Each tamariki painted a symbol that best reflects who they are and how they want to be seen. This mural will be available for public viewing with location and date to be advised.
Children of people in prison are bright, courageous, strong, and creative. But instead of being seen for who they are, they are often misunderstood, misrepresented, unheard and unseen. They are the invisible victims of crime who are largely overlooked and underrepresented in our current justice system.
