Correct, An Exhibition by Jenny Wicks
“In work created during a 9 ‐month residency at Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR), Glasgow University, photographer and audio artist Jenny Wicks explores how researchers at the largest criminological centre in Scotland approach the study of crime and punishment. [ . . .] The installation’s audio, visual and sculptural components seek to immerse and bring the audience into the close-up presence of criminological sites, exploring key boundaries between innocent and guilty, researcher and researched, us and them, and shows how researchers’ use of criminological spaces resists and reproduces social hierarchies.”
Where: Wasps Artists’ Studios, 141 Bridgegate, Glasgow G1 5HZ, Tel: 0141 553 5890

Lecture to be given by Sir Harry Burns.
“Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer Sir Harry Burns is an ardent advocate for early years interventions and has spoken recently about the devastating consequences of health inequalities in Scotland. His lecture will focus on the circumstances that have caused a relative decline in Scotland’s health over the past 40 years which have also caused increases in offending behaviour. He will highlight the ways in which health and wellbeing can be created thereby offering opportunities for Scotland to transform itself.”
