Best practice guide for artists working in prison

A new guide for artists working in prisons has resulted from a three-year, evaluated programme of arts interventions in the Scottish criminal justice system.

Led by Creative Scotland and the Scottish Prison Service (SPS), as well as senior management teams at participating prisons, the Arts and Criminal Justice Programme featured high-quality arts activities for prisoners and staff, enabling “tentative steps towards developing a more integrated approach for the delivery of arts within criminal justice”.
