Cell by Date Exhibition has been developed by local young people from the Genesis E2E Project.
The group have explored the differences between 2 people, 2 Crimes, 2 Cells looking at how a prison
cell has changed since 1871. They researched the life of Agnes Lawless and her conviction for theft
from shop keeper Joseph Holden and her sentenceof six months hard labour at Strangeways Prison.

After visiting Hindley Prison and speaking to a young offender they constructed cells of each period,
they designed leaflets and posters with a graphic designer and began the production of filming a
Victorian drama around Boltons town centre with industry professional artists from www.biggerpicturearts.com

The young people were divided by a Adrian Barber into a feature film crew and a behind the scenes crew and roles included camera operators, sound recordists and photographers.
Over a series of workshops and filming sessions the crews shot scenes at various Victorian locations,
including a court room, prison cells and a shop.They interviewed each other about their roles and
involvement in the project and the shorts films on this DVD and the slideshows of photographs are the results of their hard work.

Cell by Date project was produced by talented
young people and staff from Genesis E2E Project
and Bolton Museum and Archives.
