Event Information

Double Take is an exhibition of artwork, audio and creative writing from prisons, secure hospitals and young offender institutions in the West Midlands. This inspiring collection has been selected from entries to the 2014 Koestler Awards – a charitable scheme that has been rewarding artistic achievement in the criminal justice sector for over 50 years. The exhibition encourages viewers to take another look at ex-offenders and consider the positive contributions they can make to society.

The Koestler Trust and mac bimingham present Double Take, the Koestler exhibition for the West Midlands, curated by young people from Birmingham Youth Offending Service.

Double Take is kindly supported by the Barrow Cadbury Trust.
