JUSTICE AND THE ARTS: What makes a successful Arts in Corrections programme? How might we re-imagine systems of justice through the arts? These questions were explore at the Arts in Corrections Lower North Island hui, held in Wellington on 23 February 2023.

Regional Arts in Corrections networks

The prisons are located in four regions and Arts Access Aotearoa has established networks within three of these regions. The networks include Corrections staff and volunteers, Community Corrections staff, artists and writers, academics, and people in the wider community interested in arts and social justice.

  • Northern Region Network
  • Lower North Island Network
