How can art benefit people in the criminal justice system?
Our speakers talk about using archival research to create art, their experiences of creative projects in prisons and the impact they can have on the people taking part.
The season begins on Thursday 23 September with Art in Prison: Creativity and the Criminal Justice System. This talk explores how can art benefit people in the criminal justice system, as well as examining how artists can be inspired by archival material. Speakers include Jo Tapp, Arts Manager at Koestler Arts; Susanna Menis, Lecturer in Law at Birkbeck London University; and Neil Dembry, Custodial Manager at Askham Grange in York.
Tickets cost £5 per person. Starts at 7pm.
