The Koestler Trust and The Prisons Mission present an exhibition touring central London churches throughout 2018. The tour started at St James’s Piccadilly and then on to Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church and St Martins in the Fields.

The Prisons Mission is an initiative of Churches Together in Westminster (CTiW) which provides support and assistance identified and needed by the multi-faith Chaplaincy Teams in prisons. It also aims to ensure that prisons while out of sight are not out of mind.

The exhibition showcases a selection of portraiture and sculpture entered into the 2017 Koestler Awards from across the UK. The artworks highlight the skills and talents of people in prisons and other secure settings and represent the strength of work that is entered into the awards scheme every year.
