“Creativity in British Prisons” Magdalen Evans Tuesday 10 March 2020

We will hear about the many projects around the country attempting to harness people’s potential, often in a place where they are able to concentrate for the first time. Fine Cell Work teaches inmates to sew, most of whom are men, as women only make up about 8% of the prison estate.

Magdalen studied history of art at UEA and worked at Agnew's for over ten years; since then has been organising exhibitions and writing articles, concentrating on C19th/20th women artists. She also works with charities that help ex-offenders through art and education. She has lectured for the Art Fund, National Portrait Gallery, Pre-Raphaelite Society amongst others
