Panel Discussion: Education in Spaces of Incarceration

Franni Paley ’10 writes:

Attend the Education in Spaces of Incarceration panel discussion! This will be a discussion on the role of arts and education programs within the prison system with a pizza dinner to follow.

This panel will be an opportunity to learn about the kinds of education- and arts-based work people are doing in the prison system, locally and nationally. The panelists will speak about the work they do and consider questions like: what kind of partnerships between people in prison and those on the outside can form through this work? What are current trends around education in spaces of imprisonment? What are the possibilities and limitations of prison education as a means to structural change within the prison system?
