Inspiring creativity and encouraging personal and social change through the arts
The Prison Arts Foundation is as important as it is unique. Thanks to our pioneering work with people with convictions lives are being transformed and patterns of behaviour changed for good.
Our team of experienced professional artists working across the criminal justice system in Northern Ireland are offering people with convictions 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.
Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund the Support Hub provides a wraparound support service to people returning to the community following release from prison, those on probation and those serving non-custodial sentences. It is a collaborative service working along with Start360 and Community Sports Network.
