The Role of the Arts in the Cycle of Crime, Prison and Re-Offending. Angela Findlay Tuesday 22 October 2019

Years of working as an artist within the Criminal Justice System in England and Germany have given Angela unique insights into the destructive and costly cycle of crime, prisons and re-offending.  Through extraordinary images of prisoner's art, interspersed with personal stories of art projects, she demonstrates how within the process of creating art there are vital opportunities for offenders to develop key life skills.   In the context of prisons it is clear that the arts are not simply decorative or commercial pastimes, but absolutely vital, hugely relevant and potentially life changing.
