Koestler Arts

We have renewed an arrangement with the Koestler Trust to use a selection of images from the annual awards in our publications. This website incorporates many of these.

“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.”
