Jailbird is a brand of products designed and manufactured by inmates of the Givenich penitentiary, on the initiative of défi-job, an association promoting the socio-professional reintegration of inmates through work. To make the Jailbird products, the inmates work with craftsmen, artists and designers. Halfway between art and craft, the final product is not the main objective. It is the process of making it, in cooperation with the inmates, that is important: communication, transmission of know-how, respect for others, development of social links, exchange of experiences.
Products are displayed in an exhibition at Casino Luxembourg’s “Aquarium” space.
