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 transferable, which assist employment and community integration.
