Sally Taylor, Chief Executive of Koestler Arts is “delighted” with the PERU research into the impact of the Koestler Arts Awards on prisoners and prisons.  Koestler Arts is Britain’s oldest and best known UK prison arts charity, awarding, exhibiting and selling artworks by prisoners for 50 years, some of whom later go on to pursue arts degrees and careers in the field. Over 100 experts from their various fields have judged the competition over the years, including Angel of the North sculptor, Anthony Gormley, Louis Theroux, Grayson Perry and Carol Ann Duffy.  Click here for the report.
