Portraits of Justice is a daylong symposium that will engage the public in re-imagining the criminal justice system through the lens of art, advocacy, and policy reform. A diverse and robust roster of directly impacted artists, practitioners, government officials, and scholars will host a series of discussions to reflect upon local reform efforts, as well as engaging with the national dialogue that highlights strategic arts-based approaches to criminal justice reform.
The symposium is the culmination of month-long programming, including a public art project, a new fellowship program, and a series of public performances.
Registration is free and open to the public. Complimentary lunch will be provided.
