Koestler Trust

In the Summer of 2016, I began volunteering for a prison arts charity called the Koestler Trust. In this role, I would visit their HQ every Friday at HMP Wormwood Scrubs, writing feedback to inmates for the pieces they have submitted for the Koestler Awards. These pieces were then exhibited at the Southbank Gallery in November 2016. I was able to assist with the organisation of pieces of artwork in to categories in preparation for the upcoming exhibition. I am continuing to volunteer with the trust again this summer, as they prepare for the Koestler Awards 2017. Working with the trust has encouraged my interest in art therapy, which I am really keen to look in to as a career.
