Prison Arts Foundation (PAF) is a registered charity that seeks to provide access to the arts for those people who have offended in Northern Ireland.
Our mission is to inspire creativity and encourage personal and social change in offenders within the criminal justice system, through the arts
Our aim is to release the creative potential of those previously excluded or from marginalised communities, those serving custodial and community sentences. We contract professional artists and practitioners to engage, teach, enthuse and give inspiration to participants in inclusive and tolerant workshops in a variety of art forms.Read More
