How can you have agency in an environment structured on institutional control? Leisure education is one way prisoners are using to help them discover and assert agency and choice behind bars.
Emily Aspinwall, Stark Raven Media Collective
**This interview is self-contained with an intro and extro**

“Doing time” .

That is an expression often used to describe serving a sentence in prison.

Living in an environment of institutional control, what choice do prisoner’s have about how they are doing time?

Alison Link argues that even, and maybe especially, in the environment of a prison, how people make choices can have a huge impact on their lives.

Alison is a leisure education consultant and teacher. She has been working with prisoners on the issues of time, leisure and agency for several years. She is currently working on a PhD that is exploring these connections.

Stark Raven speaks with Alison about her work with prisoners and philosophy on leisure.
