Join the NCJAA for a network forum to discuss and share experiences around access challenges faced by arts practitioners working in secure settings.
The impact of regime restrictions brought in under Covid-19 continues to cause disruption to arts provision in prisons. Where practitioners have gained access, they are increasingly faced with additional challenges that impact their work.
At the forum, we will be joined by Good Vibrations Executive Director Katy Haigh and Only Connect CEO Simon Pellew sharing how they have approached issues of access to deliver projects in prisons during the Covid-19 pandemic. Also joining us will be Clean Break’s Joint Artistic Director, Anna Herrmann and Geese Theatre Company’s Artistic Director/CEO, Andy Watson to lead discussion on some of the wider access and safeguarding issues practitioners are faced with. We will hear an update on how current policy may affect arts in criminal justice practitioners and there will also be opportunity for discussion – in particular, we’d like to hear your experiences around prison access to inform our policy influencing work and help us advocate on your behalf.
