Inspiring Futures is an ambitious programme of work led by the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance. It is a unique collaboration bringing together leading arts in criminal justice organisations and the University of Cambridge’s Institute of Criminology.
Through a ground-breaking artistic programme in prisons and the community with embedded participative research, the programme is looking into why arts interventions impact on the lives of people in the criminal justice system and how to optimise the effect.
The activity feeds directly into our good practice community through the development of a range of online resources, regional learning events and opportunities. This will, in turn, inform our policy influencing channels, ensuring what works on the ground is converted into lasting policy change.
With thanks to project funders Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Economic and Social Research Council.
