Our commitment to creative arts for rehabilitation
Amongst others, we have worked with Open Eye Gallery to deliver photography lessons in secure environments, Tate Liverpool to create collaborative installations, and Horse and Bamboo Theatre to encourage introspection and communication through drama. Most importantly however, we ensure that we offer creative enrichment art classes in-house to those learners who want to access it.
Our high-quality creative arts and enrichment and Personal and Social Development (PSD) programmes support the mental health and general wellbeing of our learners in prisons.
By engaging our learners in creative enrichment classes, not only are they supported in the development of many 'soft skills' like teamwork and communication, but we are also opening the door to further participation in our provisions. Every Novus colleague and external partner plays a critical role in contributing to this aim.
