Funder: Wellcome Trust via University of Warwick
Date: 16/06/2017 – 15/06/2019
Principal Investigator:  Virginia Berridge
Staff:  Janet Weston

Description: This grant was part of a larger ‘Provision for Public Engagement within Research Grants’ award from the Wellcome Trust. Working with media company Digital Drama, we developed oral histories around HIV/AIDS and prison in the Republic of Ireland into an audio docudrama, which was launched at public events in London and Dublin to coincide with World AIDS Day, 1 December 2017. The docudrama is now available on the project website: https://histprisonhealth.com/arts-projects/positive-in-prison-hiv-stories-from-a-dublin-jail/
