Artist in Residence at HMP Grendon (2014-2018)

Loading Events

Ikon is working in partnership with HMP Grendon, Buckinghamshire, the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust and renowned artist Edmund Clark over a four-year programme.

In light of growing evidence that the arts can offer transformational experience in offenders’ lives thus breaking the vicious circle of crime and incarceration, the Artist in Residence programme will develop a public discourse about prisons, rehabilitation and criminality. Integral to the artist’s research and art work, undertaken during the residency, will be practical opportunities for offenders to work alongside a professional artist assisting them in their own creative endeavours.
