National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance
As a member of Clinks you are also eligible to join the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) network.
The NCJAA'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. It provides a network to promote, develop and support high quality arts practice in criminal justice settings, influencing and informing government, commissioners and the public.
Over 900 individuals and organisations in its network deliver creative opportunities to people in prison, on probation and in the community, with impressive, internationally recognised results. The NCJAA provides a collective voice at policy level and develops evidence to make the case for the arts in prison, probation and community settings, raising the profile and quality of the arts in criminal justice settings.
