National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance has received funding offer to become part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio
We are very pleased to announce that the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance has been received a funding offer to become one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Sector Support Organisations from 2018-2022.
The National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance’s vision is to promote access to arts and creative opportunities as a springboard to positive change for all those who come into contact with the criminal justice system. We provide a network to promote, develop and support high quality arts practice in criminal justice settings, influencing and informing government, commissioners and the public.
Becoming an NPO will enable us to significantly increase our impact geographically and in terms of reaching more diverse participants and audiences. It will enable us to work with more of our members across the country and deliver an innovative work plan focused on developing new regional networks and enhancing professional development, and it will support us to be able to focus on driving up artistic quality consistently across our membership.
Alison Frater, Chair of the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance says: “This bid is recognition of the value of many specialist organisations and individuals working with people in the criminal justice system; with individuals, families, and with staff across all art forms with impressive results – inspiring participation, changing lives, reducing reoffending, and producing high quality art for all to enjoy.”
