Clinks and National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance response to the Arts Council England consultation: shaping the next ten years
Clinks and the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) welcome this opportunity to provide further feedback on Arts Council England’s draft 10-year strategy. Our response to the initial consultation made a number of recommendations promoting the crucial importance of arts in transforming the lives of people in contact with the criminal justice system.
To inform this response we have spoken to members of the NCJAA network and steering group. We have also met with key officials from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) to keep them informed of the recommendations we make in this response, in recognition of their support for arts in the criminal justice system and the partnership opportunities this represents for Arts Council England to build on its work in criminal justice.
