Art By Offenders

This is just a plea to all you London folk really. I will do some proper entries tomorrow when I am less tired. There is a super (and free!) exhibition on at The Southbank Centre right now showcasing this year's entries to the Koestler Awards. All the art on display (including songs, poems, paintings, matchstick models, clothing etc) has been made by offenders in prisons, secure patients, young offenders, people on probation and so on. It is a fab exhibition and I think the Koestler Trust is a great organisation giving a voice in the art world to people who otherwise would not have one. Anyway, I think you should all go see it. . . go. .  .now!

one of my fave pieces from the exhibition by inmate David Franklin
