Who do you admire? Who are your heroes? Who might inspire you to change? These are the questions we asked inmates at HMP Isis in July 2022. Role models from the worlds of music, sport and design, as well as the likes of Martin Luther King, came up time and again. DACRL then worked with design agency Here to bring this list of heroes to life in a series of posters that were displayed in the Granary Building foyer at Central Saint Martins from October-November 2022 for Black History Month, and across the HMP Isis prison estate. Over 700 18–24-year-olds reside at HMP Isis, 70% are from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. Although these posters were initially created for Black History Month, they aim to provide inspiration all year-round to inmates.Each poster features an inspiring quote from the individual pictured in the design, including Barack Obama, Stromzy, Virgil Abloh, Marcus Rashford, Nipsey Hussle, Lebron James, Usain Bolt and more.
