National Alliance for Arts In Criminal Justice

The National Alliance for Arts in Criminal Justice – previously the Arts Alliance – is the leading national network supporting the arts in criminal justice. Our aim is to ensure the arts are used within the Criminal Justice System as a springboard for positive change.  Nearly 700 National Alliance for Arts in Criminal Justice members develop creative interventions to support people in prison, on probation and in the community, with impressive results. We support this transformative work by providing a network and a voice for all the talented and creative people who are committed to making great art with offenders.
