The Koestler Trust is a charity founded in 1962 by a bequest from the British Hungarian author, Arthur Koestler. It helps offenders and ex-offenders in the UK to express themselves creatively and gain new skills as a means to rehabilitation.
Each year they award and give feedback to over 3000 people submitting work across 50 categories of fine art, craft and design, performance and audio, film and animation and writing, to be judged by leading names in the arts and creative industries
Prison Education Manager, Fiona Robinson said, "Prisoners at the Isle of Man Prison always do well in these awards and we are delighted to have this opportunity to show their work to the public."
The education team helps students to achieve successful rehabilitation and resettlement into the community and to make a positive contribution to society supporting student in gaining qualifications, life and leisure skills which enables them to achieve the above goals.
Art and Craft activities are an important part of this provision and play a major role in the rehabilitation process.
