Artlink Central has extensive experience of delivering cultural opportunities to offenders and have had significant success in capturing strong evaluation of our work. After a strong three year programme which ended in 2010, a whole new range of programmes are beginning in 2013 as outlined below.
1. Creative Practice in Prisons - Evolving new programme supporting women centred practice by artists in prisons focussing initially on HMP Cornton Vale.
2. Forthways – This is a new Creative Public Service design programme exploring how referral pathways can support offenders in prisons and in communities to access creative opportunities to support them to reduce chances of reoffending.
3. Scottish Prison Arts Network – Support this new organisation as a partner and play a strong strategic and practical role in establishing and growing this emerging network of practice to raise the profile and quality of arts practice in criminal justice in Scotland.
