Help unlock creative potential through art!
Prodigal Arts is a charity that provides opportunities for talented prisoners and ex-offenders to produce and sell artwork created in their own voluntary time as part of their ongoing rehabilitation.
Our project is based in Bristol and works in the region.
Artwork is produced for sale directly to the public and through commissions.
The aim of Prodigal Arts is to help people in prison and post-release 'unlock' their creative potential, 'setting free' a positive sense of individual achievement and self-worth which aims to contribute to reducing the chances of re-offending.
"Attending PA sessions had a positive effect on my self-esteem,
particularly when receiving feedback on my artwork... which makes me feel like I actually do something well and worthwhile...
I now have a newly-discovered lust for an offence free life"
