We are delighted to invite you to attend the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) Annual Conference to discuss ‘what’s next for arts in criminal justice?’

The conference aims to offer our membership an opportunity to explore and discuss the future priorities for the sector. We will be highlighting examples of innovation and best practice against the latest developments that are supporting a real step change in the recognition and legitimacy of the work of the NCJAA membership.

The programme includes:

  • John Glen MP, Minister for Arts, Heritage and Tourism
  • Darren Henley OBE, CEO of Arts Council England
  • Sir Peter Bazalgette, Executive Chairman of ITV; Nick Hardwick, Chair of Parole Board; and Sally Taylor, CEO of Koestler Trust, in a Question Time panel
  • Exclusive performance of restorative justice theatre, The Listening Room
  • Clean Break‘s Hear, written by Deborah Bruce

With contributions from leading arts and criminal justice organisations and individuals, in breakout sessions on:

  • Arts in criminal justice: building the creative economy
  • The Lammy Review: the creative case
  • Digital Innovation in criminal justice: how arts make an impact

Bookings for breakout sessions are now open. See the full programme and sign up here.

It promises to be a lively event and there will be time to network and exchange ideas during lunch and throughout. Conversations will feed into the NCJAA’s priorities as we begin our journey to become an Arts Council England, National Portfolio Sector Support Organisation from 2018 onwards. Make sure you attend and have your say!
