Incarceration does more than imprison the body; it can diminish the spirit and dehumanize the person. The arts offer a practice of self-knowing, self-expression, and connection with a wider world. This program begins with a screening of Pull of Gravity, followed by brief presentations by leaders of arts organizations serving incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people. There will be a panel discussion with some prepared questions, and time for audience-generated questions as well. Join us to learn more about how organizations are creating social and spiritual change for people in the justice system through filmmaking, songwriting/music, and visual art.
