My Path: Art by People in the Criminal Justice System at Millennium Gallery, City Centre 20 May — 20 June 2021 Entrance is free — Visit now

My Path is a creative walk through the criminal justice system. Every work on display has been made by someone in a prison, secure hospital, young offender institution or on probation.

Presented at Millennium Gallery in Sheffield, the exhibition has been created in partnership with Koestler Arts, a charity that recognises the uniquely transformative power of art. For almost 60 years, they’ve worked across the criminal justice system to help creativity become part of people’s rehabilitative journey.

Curated by a group of young people working with Sheffield Youth Justice Service, My Path showcases artwork from across Yorkshire which were submitted to the 2020 Koestler Awards for arts in criminal justice. Many of the artists who are featured in the exhibition experienced lockup for 23 hours a day during the pandemic. With often limited access to materials, each work they’ve created represents a significant artistic achievement.
