Abstract

Arts-based interventions have a long and complex history of work within the justice system. From fine art, to drama, creative writing and poetry, dance, to music – the Art forms are many and varied, as are the areas of the justice system that have incorporated the Arts into their work. This chapter outlines the range of Arts-based interventions in the UK justice system, including case studies. It provides an overview of the varied and challenging history of Arts-based interventions in the justice system. It discusses the role and impact of the Arts in the justice system, and highlights questions that exist concerning the evidence for the use of Arts-based interventions in the justice system.
