New guidance for working in criminal justice settings
Our new guide, Enhancing arts and culture in the criminal justice system: A partnership approach, is now available to download and read.
The publication outlines the complex nature of the criminal justice system and the value of arts and culture in these settings. It includes step-by-step guidance and principles of best practice – putting individuals with complex needs at the heart of effective interventions, encouraging partnership work and ensuring artistic quality.
We hope the guide will foster new relationships, inspire new programmes and encourage artists, arts organisations and cultural institutions to make brave, new, quality work in criminal justice settings.
This guide provides the insights, know-how and encouragement to those who want to make a difference but might be struggling to know where to start. I am delighted to endorse it.”
Edward Argar MP, Under Secretary of State, Ministry of Justice
