The Arts and Abolishing Prisons
Some prominent groups, organizations and artists are coordinating exhibits and events to raise awareness of some important social and cultural issues.

An event in San Francisco on October 3rd will explore this in depth.Mission Arts and Performance Project, Pacific Felt Factory, 14 Black Poppies, A Simple Collective/ASC Projects, The Iruke Project, Independent Arts and Media, and Media Alliance will join in the effort to increase public awareness about the prison industrial complex through the arts.
The event will feature an artists panel, performance art, and music in an effort to bring greater awareness to the issues that intersect mass incarceration, and will investigate this with panel discussions, art and performances inquiring:
- The role of the artist in creating large-scale works that create meaningful shifts of how the public understands the Prison Industrial Complex
- The role of media in reshaping the narrative of the Prison Industrial Complex and the people’s impacted by the PIC
- The role of arts impact in the lives of inmates and former inmates in County Jails.
- Breaking down the walls between the inside of prisons and the outside.
