The Prison Arts Foundation is as important as it is unique. Thanks to its pioneering work with prisoners and ex-offenders, lives are being transformed and patterns of behaviour changed for good. The team of dedicated and experienced professional artists working across the prison network in Northern Ireland is offering many prisoners a life-line, helping to improve their creative and communications skills, which is key to personal and social development, building self-confidence and unlocking people’s potential.

The Arts Council is proud of our 15-year association with PAF; what PAF achieves through the arts, giving individuals the ability to reshape their futures, is a constructive intervention that benefits society as a whole.
