Ex-offenders turn to art

Young former criminals have put together an art exhibition in the World Museum Liverpool.

A group of young ex-offenders have spent the last six weeks looking through art work which was produced in prisons, secure children's homes and other people on probation in the North West, to put together their own art exhibition.

The Safety Net of Sky Exhibition, put together by the Koestler Trust will be at the World Museum in Liverpool from 30th March until the 27th of May and displays work which the former criminals have chosen themselves.
