100 Years On - An Art Trail by Women in Prison
Erika is proud to have 9 pieces of work prepresented in Koestler Trust's Women's Art Trail
In 2018 the Koestler Trust will be displaying artwork by women in prison in key sites across the UK.
These ‘corridors of power’ will display around 100 artworks by over
50 women who have entered artwork and poetry into the 2016, 2017 and
2018 Koestler Awards.
The project will play a part in the Vote 100 celebrations which will
be taking place throughout 2018 celebrating the centenary of the 1918
Representation of the People Act which granted women the right to vote.
Many suffragettes were famously imprisoned 100 years ago and this
trail will shine a light on the challenges faced by women in prison in
2018, put their challenges on the agenda of policy makers and catalyse
improvement in the treatment and rehabilitation of women prisoners.
Public venues will displaying work from International Women’s Day on 8th March.
Please note – many of the venues are not open to the public. Please
see the leaflet to check if the venue is open to the public and check
opening times directly with the venues.
