We deliver work in five main areas
- promoting arts organisations
- building the evidence base for arts in criminal justice
- supporting and informing policy
- practice development
- developing audiences.
We do this via online platforms and resources, news and events, and by building relationships and networks with policy makers and commissioners. To ensure that key stakeholders and others understand – through testimony and evidence – the power of the arts to transform lives, we also carry out research and administer the Evidence Library, the online library of research and evaluation reports on the impact of the arts in criminal justice.
This section highlights some of the main work we do, from our research – including our latest large scale research project ‘Inspiring Futures’ – to policy work. It includes information on our professional mentoring scheme. You’ll also find a selection of case studies detailing the impact of specific arts initiatives within the Criminal Justice System.
