Arts/Visual & Written: Incarceration Affect on Families and Community

This project includes writings, art exhibit, documentary, a book. Will focus on art making & writing that show how incarceration of humans has impacted families & communities who are related. Responding to the question - How we can can use art to protest, process, & object to How Incarceration Affects Families & Communities? Along with offering written works & art that take up the subject, we will create a documentary, and post our outcome online to show our discussion of the ethics of representation, & what it means to write about this violence & trauma, neglect & damage of people incarcerated & their families/communities. We will focus on the craft of writing and art, which will engage viewers in responding to the works of art in the exhibition.  In the Chicago neighborhood of North Lawndale, there is disagreement as to how many residents have been incarcerated at some time in their lives. It has been suggested that from 47% to 85% of families have had someone in their family imprisoned at some time. Imagine the effect on the children, families, school system, neighborhood, & the self-esteem & attitude of this community. Ask for guidelines on how to enter.

We will also provide opportunities for groups to see the exhibit and learn from it. This can include a workshop in the garden if requested.
