Inspiring Futures is an ambitious programme of work led by the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance. It is a unique collaboration bringing together leading arts in criminal justice organisations and the University of Cambridge’s Institute of Criminology.
Inspiring Futures will combine a ground-breaking artistic programme in prisons and the community with embedded participative research. It will advance knowledge into why arts interventions impact on the lives of people in the criminal justice system and how to optimise the effect, thus creating a step-change in arts and criminal justice.
The activity will feed directly into our good practice community through the development of a range of online resources, regional learning events and opportunities. This will, in turn, feed into our policy influencing channels, ensuring what works on the ground is converted into lasting policy change.
With thanks to project funders Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Economic and Social Research Council.
