Justice and Arts Scotland is an organisation that celebrates and promotes the arts as a vital tool within justice and connects artists with communities and services within this sector.
What we believe
We believe that the arts have a vital role to play in nurturing and supporting individuals and communities with experience of the justice system.
We know that the arts is a tool for dialogue and positive change and can promote connection, communication and well-being in communities across Scotland.
We recognise that a connected and informed arts community can strengthen the quality and impact of creative opportunities and allow them to happen more often.
We are committed to working in partnership with other organisations, agencies and support services to develop and advocate arts experiences for all.
We aim to contribute to a fair and safer Scotland by strengthening and developing creative practice in justice settings and by promoting human connection through artistic endeavour.
