Koestler Arts is the UK’s best-known prison arts charity. We encourage people in the criminal justice system to change their lives by participating in the arts. We share their artworks with the public, so people can witness this diverse range of voices, stories and talent.
We aim to:
Help prisoners, secure patients and detainees lead more positive lives by motivating them to participate and achieve in the arts.
Increase public awareness and understanding of arts by people in the criminal justice system.
Be a dynamic, responsive organisation which achieves excellent quality and value for money.
