This workshop is for you to share your views on the draft Arts Council England 2020-2030 strategy Shaping the next 10 years. The National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) want to explore where and how this innovative work may fit into the Arts Council England vision.
We want to hear from artists and arts organisations (across all art forms) who are working, or would like to work, in criminal justice settings. We would also like to hear from people working in prisons and community settings who are interested in using the arts to support rehabilitation, employability and wellbeing.
You will hear from John McMahon, Senior Manager, Policy and Research, from Arts Council England. Your views will help us shape the NCJAA response to the strategy.
The event is free, but does have limited spaces available
If you can’t attend the event but would like to feed into the consultation you can learn more on the process and fill in their survey on Arts Council England’s website
In April 2018 the National Criminal Justice Alliance (NCJAA) became an Arts Council funded Sector Support Organisation as part of their National Portfolio. We aim to represent the views of those artists and creative practitioners working in criminal justice settings. In 2017 we were commissioned by Arts Council to write a document exploring what success looks like in criminal justice settings: www.artsincriminaljustice.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Success-in-Arts-in-Criminal-Justice_Sept2018.pdf.
The findings from this will also be used to inform our response to the consultation.
