Art for a New Future: National Convening 2021


Join our growing network of artists impacted by criminal legal systems, teaching artists, arts advocates, and allies for interactive and embodied art experiences, skill-sharing, and conversation. Participants will learn, create, and connect, harnessing the liberatory power of the arts as we reimagine justice.

All workshops, discussions, and performances will align with one or more of the central themes and core values of Art for a New Future:

  • Art as Abolition: the arts as a pathway for communities to imagine and build worlds beyond policing and incarceration; art as a tool for advocacy, nurturing community.
  • Art for All: increasing access to creative opportunities within carceral institutions; pedagogy; funding; trauma-informed arts education.
  • Solidarity and Community: building and nourishing connections and resilient relationships across our network.
  • Participatory learning: learning through and within community, through embodiment, through creative practice; artistic practice as a tool for healing, growth, connection, and fueling our radical imaginations.
