  • Description:

    The Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP) is excited to announce a great opportunity to be a part of a new initiative called the Atonement Project—an arts based restorative justice program which seeks to start meaningful conversations about crime, incarceration, and reconciliation.  We invite you participate in an Atonement Project arts workshop.

    How to Get Involved
    Anyone whose life has been touched by crime or incarceration in any way is welcome to participate, and there is no cost involved in participation. Workshops will take place once a week for two hours and will run for  twelve weeks. We ask that participants try to come to all workshops, but we understand that not everyone who participates will be able to attend every single week. Drop in to a weekly session to get started.

    Each workshop will be a space for participants to collaborate as a group on creative writing, performance, and/or visual art. No prior artistic training or previous affiliation with PCAP is required. Everyone is welcome, and no particular skill set is necessary for participation.
