New film makes the case for arts in criminal justice

New film makes the case for arts in criminal justice

We are pleased to announce the release of our new film Why do arts in criminal justice matter?

Using interviews filmed during our 2017 Annual Conference at the National Theatre, the film features responses from sector leaders and supporters, and shares inspirational accounts of our members’ work; making a compelling case for arts in criminal justice.

What access to the arts can do is to show you a set of possibilities to how you can live your life differently, and how you can make a really meaningful contribution to society.
– Darren Henley OBE, Chief Executive, Arts Council England

If you believe that everybody should be given a second chance – and should not be judged by the worst thing they have ever done – then it’s important that criminal justice can use the arts to change the way people think.
– Sally Taylor, Chief Executive, Koestler Trust
