Arts by Offenders, Secure Patients and Detainees


The annual exhibition of work by prisoners, secure patients and immigration detainees, returns to the Royal Festival Hall for its second year. Curated by a group of serving female prisoners from HMP Downview, the exhibition showcases some of the 130 best works from the 2009 Koestler Awards, which received 5,867 entries. Work ranges from oil painting and mixed media to woodcraft and silk painting.
