Have your say on Arts Council England’s 10-year strategy
The National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) is asking its members to have their say on Arts Council England’s (ACE) upcoming strategy for 2020-2030, and shape where creative work in criminal justice settings fits in to its 10-year vision.
We welcome ACE’s increased support for our sector, and believe this is an important opportunity to identify how criminal justice can help ACE deliver on it’s vision that by 2030 creativity and culture of every kind is celebrated, and people from every background benefit from public investment in culture.
As well as encouraging individual responses, the NCJAA is developing its own response. This will be shaped by:
- Our key messages (flyer published November 2018)
- What does success look like for arts in criminal justice? (report published September 2018)
- Arts Council England’s summary of evidence (published November 2018)
In relation to this we held a consultation event at FACT Liverpool to discuss the draft strategic outcomes with artists, arts organisations and professionals working across the criminal justice system.
In order to support our members to develop their own response, we have pulled together a draft of NCJAA’s thinking around the consultation. Please note this is working document and we welcome comments.
UPDATE: We have published our final response and are no longer taking comments (with many thanks to those who contributed). We encourage members to read our response in order to help shape their own.

In April 2018 the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance became an Arts Council England funded Sector Support Organisation as part of their National Portfolio. We aim to represent the views of artists, arts organisations and creative practitioners working in criminal justice settings.
