Open House London
Saturday 22 September 2018
Koestler Arts Centre
168A Du Cane Road, W12 0TX
10am – 5pm
We are delighted to be participating in Open House London 2018. Our headquarters in the former governor’s house at the gates of HM Prison Wormwood Scrubs in East Acton will be opening its doors to the public.
Artworks from the 52 categories in this year’s Koestler Awards will be for sale throughout our three-storey building. Come to see paintings, sculptures, textile art, ceramics and much more from prisons, detention centres and secure hospitals across the country.
This is a fantastic opportunity to see some of the thousands of artworks entered each year to our annual Award Scheme which have not been selected for our exhibition at Southbank Centre, as well as a selection of artworks from previous years, including the platinum award-winning painting from the first Koestler Awards in 1962.
This will be one of the first chances to buy unique and original artworks from the 2018 Koestler Awards.
We hope to see you there!
