Our project is committed to communicating with audiences outside of academia and will be working with Koestler Arts to organise an exhibition of prisoners’ art to promote a wider interest in food in prison. The exhibition in 2023 will be open to the public, and those unable to attend will be able to view it via a ‘virtual tour’ or film of the exhibition uploaded onto the project website.
In addition, Koestler Arts have set ‘Taste’ as the topic for their themed category within the 2022 Koestler Awards, leading to ongoing impact from the research. The annual Koestler Awards are open to entrants within the UK criminal justice system. Artwork from entrants identifying as women submitted to the Taste themed category in 2022 will also be considered for inclusion in the planned exhibition.
