The art awards scheme for offenders, secure patients and detainees

We’re the UK’s best-known prison arts charity. We’ve been awarding, exhibiting and selling artworks by offenders, detainees and secure patients for over 50 years.

Our awards receive over 8,000 entries a year – inspiring offenders to take part in the arts, work for achievement and transform their lives. Our national exhibition attracts 20,000 visitors – showing the public the talent and potential of offenders and people in secure settings.

We have no endowment or capital – our work depends entirely on donations.

The Tabernacle, Notting Hill Gate, 35 Powis Square, off Portobello Road, London, W11 2AY

The Koestler Trust invites you to a fundraising evening at the Tabernacle, Notting Hill. Each £100 ticket includes an original artwork made on a postcard drawn at random on the evening, and an evening of talks, performances, food and drink. With 40 high-profile artists joining 160 artists from prisons across the country, there is a one-in-five chance of taking home an artwork by an established artist including Grayson Perry, Anish Kapoor, Harland Miller, Cornelia Parker, Rachel Howard and Allen Jones.

For those who are not available on the 17th of May but would still like a chance of winning a postcard by Grayson Perry or Anish Kapoor, why not buy a £50 ticket to be entered into the postcard lottery draw? Let us know your postal address and we will send your original postcard artwork after the event.

All ticket sales go to continuing our work rewarding, awarding, exhibiting, selling and championing artwork by prisoners and people in secure hospitals and immigration removal centres.
