National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance is partnering with Watts Gallery to deliver a professional practice seminar on Museums and the criminal justice system.
We will be sharing case-studies and advice on developing partnerships between museums, galleries and prisons and will be holding workshops that look at the opportunities and challenges in the sector.
The seminar is suitable for cultural organisations, freelance practitioners and those working within criminal justice and prisons.
This event coincides with Watts Gallery’s Art for All Exhibition 2018 marking 10 years of work with prisons, young offenders and community groups.
