Postcards from Prison

A Koestler Arts lottery fundraising event

The Art Workers’ Guild
31 May 2023

Our sell-out Postcards from Prison fundraising event returned for the first time since the pandemic, bringing together more than 150 postcard-sized artworks created by both major British artists and artists from prisons across the UK, for a display and lottery event.

Every ticket purchased included a guaranteed win of one of these original artworks, and every ticket holder was in with a 1 in 3 chance of winning an artwork by a leading British artist, for example Grayson Perry, Maggi Hambling, Billy Childish, Jeremy Deller, Vanessa Jackson RA, and many more!

Those who were able to join us at the event were able to see all the artwork on display, enjoy delicious drinks & canapes served by award-winning Liberty Kitchen, a social enterprise training and employing prison-leavers, and heard from guest speakers about their experience of life and arts within the criminal justice system.
