Online resources: Summary: The aim of this report is to provide a clear account of the current evidence and theory base for the arts in the criminal justice sector. Its findings will inform practitioners and policy makers across the sector and help to develop appropriate models of analysis to support critical, longitudinal evaluation of arts practice in the criminal justice system. The report is constructed from a critical review of research and practice in the arts and criminal justice sector within the UK and internationally. The aims of the review were to: • Generate increased knowledge and greater understanding of the impact of arts interventions on crime prevention and reduction and the rehabilitation of offenders • Distil existing theory and practice-based models of engagement in arts in criminal justice settings. The objectives of the review were to: • Survey and evaluate the range, practice, method and effectiveness of previous arts interventions in criminal justice settings • Explore and specify the causal mechanisms/models of change underlying existing practice and any links to rehabilitation or prevention • Analyse existing evidence for any differential effects of participation in specific art forms. The report seeks to represent the variety and balance of practice across the different art forms - theatre, drama, visual arts, music, dance, opera, sculpture, crafts, literature and multi-art projects - and to examine its application and impact in three key areas of criminal justice service provision: • Prevention • Custodial and community sentencing • Resettlement and reintegration into society.
