The Role of the Arts in Prison + Detention Facilities

This is a past event.

U.S. prison arts programs date back to the late 19th century. Research indicates such programs can positively affect social-emotional, educational, vocational, disciplinary, community, and policy outcomes.

In this Virtual Mental Health Monday, Kyes Stephens of APAEP and Jeanie Thompson of AWF, along with former students, will share with us the history of their work and what they have learned along the way.
