Invited by the Prison Arts Foundation to work as a ‘Artist in Residence’ for one month in the Maze Prison, Lisburn, Northern Ireland. Amanda worked in collaboration with Loyalist & Republican prisoners on a compilation of five diverse animations. The animations explored different concepts based around confined time. All the prisoners have now been released under the Good Friday Agreement.
