BREAKING OUT A group exhibition of works by young offenders at Red Gate Gallery

Art Alive Arts Trust is proud to present an exhibition of art works created by young offenders, ex-offenders and those at risk of re-offending as well as pieces by tutors of the trust.

Art Alive Arts Trust is a registered charity that has been at the forefront of community work with offenders, ex-offenders and people on the fringe of society. For a number of years the trust has actively worked with prisons in London and the Probation Service.

This exhibition is an opportunity for members of the public, civil servants, third sector workers and members of various institutions to see what the trust’s clients are capable of creatively. Most works will be for sale with the proceeds going directly to the artists, with the aim to further financial independence.

The trust endeavours to bring together, through the creative process of art, excluded communities in London, to improve their relationships, to involve youth and adults in a practical, socially responsible way as well as to promote cultural diversity in Britain. The project ‘Unity Through Art’ encourages possibilities of employment for artists and volunteers alike.

Art Alive Arts Trust hope for support of the business community and through that support as well as raising awareness will further community life and ultimately improve life in the Capital.

Please come and support our work and immerse yourself in hitherto unseen works of art that are totally original, breathtaking and unique!! (Art Alive Trust, Lanre Olagoke 2010)
