The transforming power of art

A note from the NAACJ'S new chair Blog Published on by National Alliance for Arts in Criminal Justice

Dr Alison Frater is the new Chair of the National Alliance for Arts in Criminal Justice (NAACJ). Alison is an independent public health consultant with a strong interest in the arts. She recently retired from the NHS as Head of Public Health and Health in the Justice System in London and her past work has required expertise in research and implementation of evidence, with a strong focus on advocacy for social justice and reducing inequalities. In this blog post, Alison tells us about her first couple of months in post, and what she has learned so far from NAACJ members. Click here to read the blog. 

"The question is not whether to, but how best to ensure that arts are a central tenet of future models for education." 

This month, she's written a reflective blog post on her time with us so far. In the post she mentions our recent event in collaboration with the National Theatre, and looks ahead at how we might join up the great work currently happening with arts in health, education and criminal justice.
