Evidence Library

Online library showcasing the impact of the arts in criminal justice settings

The Evidence Library was launched by the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance in November 2012. It is an online library, housing the key research and evaluation documents on the impact of arts-based projects, programmes and interventions within the Criminal Justice System.

This comprehensive body of evidence was collated by Angus McLewin from AMA consultancy. The amount of research and evaluation that has been undertaken into the arts in criminal justice is testament to the professional approach many arts charities and social enterprises are taking towards measuring their effectiveness.

The Evidence Library can be searched in a variety of ways, including by arts organisation, evaluation organisation and art form.
