The National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) presents Inspire: Sustainability in the arts and criminal justice sector, featuring a showcase of the Inspiring Futures project and a gathering of network members at Rich Mix, London.
On the 21st March the NCJAA network will gather for a day of performances, workshops, panel debate and networking. Attendees will be invited to spend their afternoon in participatory workshops themed around sustainability from an environmental perspective to one considering workforce wellbeing. The event will bring together our network of sector specialists and stakeholders to share and reflect on the impact and future sustainability of delivering arts in criminal justice settings. See full programme here.
Bookings are now open, places for this sought after event are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets are limited to a maximum of 2 tickets per organisation to encourage a diverse representation of the arts and criminal justice sector at the event.
The showcase of work from the Inspiring Futures arts partners will be available to see at Rich Mix throughout the week of 20-26 March. Arts Partners involved are Geese Theatre Company, Clean Break, Good Vibrations, Only Connect, The Irene Taylor Trust, Helix Arts, Open Clasp and Koestler Arts – who collectively boast well over 100 years’ experience of quality work in the field. Partners are committed to shared objectives for ensuring delivery of a holistic programme of work across music, theatre and visual arts, right across the country.
About the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance
The National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) aims to ensure all those in the criminal justice system get access to arts and culture as a springboard to positive change. We do this by providing a network for artists, arts organisations and criminal justice practitioners delivering innovative work across the country. We influence policy, improve research, encourage effective practice and raise the profile of the arts in criminal justice sector. The NCJAA was born out of the closure of the Anne Peaker Centre for Arts and honours Anne Peaker’s extraordinary work in this field.
We are offering bursary tickets on a first come first serve basis.
The full ticket cost for this event is £75, and any delegates who do not attend the event without prior notice may be required to cover this cost - please see our terms and conditions below for further details.

The symptoms of COVID-19 and other respiratory infections are very similar. It is not possible to tell if you have COVID-19, flu or another respiratory infection based on symptoms alone. Most people with COVID-19 and other respiratory infections will have a relatively mild illness, especially if they have been vaccinated.
If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and you have a high temperature or you do not feel well enough to attend the conference, government health guidance is to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people. We would encourage anybody who has tested positive or has symptoms for COVID-19 to consider sending a substitute delegate from their organisation in their place, and if this is not possible to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us of non-attendance.
Code of Conduct
Clinks is a values driven organisation and we expect our members to agree and uphold those values at all Clinks events. Our membership code of conduct outlines our expectations regarding the behaviour of our members and their staff towards Clinks and other member organisations. If any behaviour or disruption during an event is considered to be a breach of the Clinks code of conduct, these concerns will be addressed by the sector support, members and networks manager and this may result in removal from future Clinks events or membership overall.
