I’m honored to share the news that I will be conducting the workshop on March 15, 2023, along with the Former JC Poet Laureate Rescue Poetix for The Confined Arts( Centre for Justice, Columbia University) as part of their Strategic Arts and Education Initiative( SAE). Extremely thankful to Reverend Issac Scott for giving me the opportunity.
The Ford Foundation has awarded The Confined Arts in partnership with Another Choice Youth and Family Outreach Inc with a grant to launch the Strategic Arts & Education (SAE) initiative to provide free artistic literacy, professional development, and capacity-building to new/existing community-based artists, students, and advocates including justice-impacted people.
THE CONFINED ARTS (TCA) IS A COMMUNITY INITIATIVE THAT IS SUPPORTED BY THE JUSTICE IN EDUCATION INITIATIVE AT COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY
TCA has a 2-part mission:
- Change the narrative that is commonly associated with individuals who are formerly incarcerated as well as those currently in prison;
- Create a consistent stream of public education that amplifies the creative voices of people affected by incarceration.
