Journey exhibition on the road…

Journey presents a selection of works in an amazing variety of media created over the past year by men and women held in Northern Ireland’s prisons as well as those on non-custodial community sentences.  First shown in November at the Crumlin Road Gaol in Belfast the Prison Arts Foundation has taken the exhibition to Belfast City Hall.

The main exhibition opens to the public from 6th – 28th January 2016.
Monday – Friday 8:30am – 5pm
Saturday and Sunday 10am – 4pm
Visitors can access the exhibition at the City Hall
via the side entrance on Donegall Square East.
 PAF invites you to attend an exhibition of mixed media artworks produced by people who have come into contact with the Criminal Justice system in Northern Ireland. This event will showcase the range of creative projects which PAF have been involved with over this last year.

We hope that you, the viewer will see that participation in the arts is a powerful learning tool and catalyst for the personal and social transformation of an individual. Alongside the artistic work produced, participation in these creative arts projects has engaged offenders in a constructive activity which PAF believe assists personal development through the promotion of positive relationships, the tolerance and acceptance of others, collaborative group work and self-reflection. Our projects aim to bring about a reduction in re-offending through the development of new skills, artistic and transferrable, which assist employment and community integration.
