We were delighted that one of our students from HMPYOI Feltham won one of the highest possible awards at the 2019 Koestler Arts Awards and was able, with the support of Novus and the prison, to be released on a temporary licence to see his work on display at the South Bank Centre. This annual insightful and free exhibition at the South Bank Centre showcases 150 pieces of art from people resident in, or with previous experience of, prison or other secure settings. Organised by the inspirational Koestler Arts who are all about "Unlocking the Talent Inside", the 2019 show was curated by the Mercury-nominated, MOBO-winning musician Soweto Kinch. https://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/another-me
We're excited to be entering lots of work into the 2020 Koestler competition and hope that we get another chance to visit the South Bank Centre with one of our students in 2020.
