Visit the 'We Are All Human' Exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall (RFH), where we'll also have the opportunity to speak to one of the artists.
This exhibition showcases artwork produced in the UK's prisons, secure hospitals, and immigration removal centres, and by ex-offenders in the community. Find out more on the RFH website.
Artist Fellows of the RSA and others are invited to meet in the 'We Are All Human' exhibition from 6:30pm. At 6.45pm there will be an artist ex-prisoner present who can discuss the work. At about 7.30pm we shall retire to an upper balcony of the RFH for drinks and further discussion.
These annual exhibitions, supported by the Koestler Trust, provide a further insight into the area of art activity now commonly referred to as ‘outsider art.’ These are works by those without any formal art training and people who for one reason or another are living to one side of mainstream society. This show is of work by offenders, secure patients, and detainees, and is often powerful and disturbing and may reveal psychological difficulties which we all recognise.
Please note this event can only take 30 people and places will be allotted on a first come, first served basis.

Location: Spirit Level, Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 8XX
