Koestler Arts at the Supreme Court
Artwork by young people
29 June – October 2022
The Supreme Court, Parliament Square, London
Koestler Arts is pleased to be returning to the Supreme Court for a public display of artwork by under-18s this summer. It will be a chance to showcase and celebrate a range of artwork entered into the Koestler Awards by our youngest entrants.
Entrants under the age of 18 can enter the Koestler Awards at any point during the year as part of our Fast Feedback programme. They receive guaranteed feedback and the chance to receive special Fast Feedback awards within 4-weeks. This programme came about in response to the shorter sentences young people often receive, and provides an opportunity for young people to have their work recognised and celebrated during their time in the criminal justice system.
This partnership will see artwork created by young people within the criminal justice system displayed inside one of the UK’s most iconic legal settings. The Supreme Court is the final court of appeal in the UK for civil cases, and for criminal cases from England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Court hears cases of the highest important that can affect the whole population.
As well as visiting the display, members of the public can visit the Supreme Court for tours, exhibitions and to watch live court sittings.
This Koestler Arts display is kindly supported by The Arts Society from the Patricia Fay Memorial Fund with matching funds from The Arts Society Chiswick.
