Creative Energy showcases an amazing body of multimedia work created by the men and women currently within the Northern Ireland prison system, as well as those on non-custodial community sentences. Along with showcasing the visual arts, the launch evening will be enhanced by the reading of some of the prisoners’ writings developed through the creative writing programme, with music and light refreshments being served.
The artwork on display will be available for sale to the general public, and all proceeds will be donated to Victims Support and reinvested back into the programme managed by Prison Arts Foundation.
The exhibition won a Highly Commended Award for Art Project Koestler Arts 2019.
