The Confined Arts: Solitary Confinement Edition

On March 12 St. Francis College welcomed, currently (via phone) and formerly incarcerated prisoners for The Confined Arts: Solitary Confinement Edition, a showcase on how art and poetry can transcend prison walls while drawing the inhumanity of solitary confinement into sharp focus.

Artwork inspired by solitary confinement was on display while survivors offered spoken word performances and poetry about their time. One performer was Spoon Jackson who spoke from a California correctional facility where he is serving a life sentence.

Representatives from Opportunities and Change and the Campaign for Alternatives to Isolated Confinement also spoke.
