Abstract

Mentoring within the criminal justice system plays an important role in rehabilitative and desistance processes. The experiences of arts-based mentors are scarcely documented. This study discloses the narratives of eleven trained arts mentors who support ex-offenders in continuing their artistic engagement. Findings show a number of benefits and challenges for those who mentor ex-offenders, and their experiences convey a message to new recruits. Reasons for becoming a mentor, limitations and constraints and mentee focused factors are discussed.
