Unlocking Potential aims to bring together arts, youth justice, youth services and education professionals together to explore best practice in engaging young offenders, or those at risk of offending or exclusion through meaningful arts interventions.

We will explore a range of arts interventions, including:-

‘ReCreations’ led by the John Hansard Gallery, Southampton who are working in partnership with the Police & Crime Commissioner

Engage Cymru Summer Arts Colleges delivered at Parc Prison Youth Offending Institute and Hillside Secure Unit, Neath

And explore these in the context of the recent Youth Justice Review (Charlie Taylor Review) which promotes access to meaningful activities for young people that motivate and inspire and support them to develop skills and gain qualifications.  The event will offer an introduction to Arts Award and include a practical interactive artist-led session on the qualification.
