Tips & ideas how to cheer up your penpals
We are looking for creative ideas to help cheer up our friends on death row which can be sent by letters - for example, our member Isabelle Délèze collected some ideas for the Christmas time which you can find here. For any further information or when you have other creative ideas, feel free to contact Claudia Tramér at We will share the ideas in our newsletter.

Workshop on forgiveness
lifespark member Pierre Pradervand offers you to participate in a workshop aimed at giving each participant simple tools to better understand and master the dynamics of the forgiveness process.
Forgiveness is first and foremost a gift one grants to oneself. If we live this experience ourselves, we will be able to help our death row correspondents let go of any resentment they may still harbor – towards the system, others involved in their existence, and above all themselves!

When                   September 30th, 2017, 10am - 5pm
Where                 Eglise française réformée / Reformierten Französischen Kirche, Predigergasse 3, Bern
Language            English
Please find more information in the invitation, and please register here.          
Kindly note that this workshop is organized in partnership with ACAT – Suisse/Schweiz/Svizzera
Feel free to send a message to for any information.
Don’t miss this opportunity to “dig” into this fabulous human process!

Project INMATES’ PICTURES / COULOI'ART – Artworks by American prisoners
Lifespark and Inmates’ Voices are pleased to present a new project which will provide another opportunity for American prisoners to be heard outside their walls: we created an exhibition that will display artwork of your pen-friends: Drawings, paintings, objects made in the cells, decorated envelopes, texts illustrated by drawings, for example a poem with a drawing, drawings of the inside of the cell, collection of texts, literary works (a copy of a book or manuscript)...
The first exhibit took place in spring 2017, click here for more details.
