Meet the team


Janette Kilner
NCJAA Manager

Janette joined the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) in July 2021. As the network manager she is responsible for overseeing the work of the Alliance and, along with the team, provides support and a voice to promote access to arts and culture for people in the criminal justice system, as a springboard to positive change.

As a fully trained drama practitioner, she spent a more than a decade working and volunteering in educational and community settings, delivering projects and helping to train future facilitators.

Prior to bringing her skills to the criminal justice sector in 2019, Janette worked for Escape the City, where she helped shape their career change courses and trained their facilitators to deliver the programmes.

She has a BA in English Literature and a MA in Applied Drama and Theatre Education. In her spare time she bakes, grows things, loves a spot of DIY and reads more books than she has time for.
