Dear Members of The Arts Society Greater London Area,

Would you like to be in with a chance to win a unique artwork by Grayson Perry, Maggi Hambling, Billy Childish, Jeremy Deller, or Vanessa Jackson RA, while supporting creativity in the criminal justice system?

As supporters of Koestler Arts, we are delighted to invite you to take part in ‘Postcards from Prison’ this year. ‘Postcards from Prison’ is our sell-out fundraising event that brings together more than 150 postcard-sized artworks created exclusively for this lottery by both major British artists and artists in prison on the Koestler Associates programme. If you want to be in with a one-in-three chance of winning an original artwork by a leading British artist, but can’t make the event, we are also selling lottery-only tickets. Every ticket purchased includes a guaranteed win of one of the postcards.

The draw and display of all the postcards will take place on Wednesday 31st May, 6.30-8.30pm at the spectacular Art Workers' Guild in central London. Throughout the evening we’ll hear from guest speakers about their experience of life and arts within the criminal justice system, and enjoy delicious canapés from the award-winning Liberty Kitchen, a social enterprise training and employing prison-leavers.

To discover some of the postcards and find out more, please click here.
