California Art for Justice Forum (FREE EVENT)
Presented by California Lawyers for the Arts, California State University, Sacramento, and the William James Association
This forum will highlight the role that the arts can play in addressing criminal justice reform in California. We expect a diverse group of stakeholders to attend: elected representatives, justice reform advocates, prominent artists, statewide arts organizations, corrections officials and returned citizens. Participants will be able to join in the discussion as we brainstorm and develop ideas for further action to show how art can impact behavior within institutions and during rehabilitation and re-entry, thereby helping to reduce recidivism which is in the interest of all citizens.
Panels will include:
- Perspectives on Art and Justice Reform
- Convergence of Arts Education and Criminal Justice Reform
This forum, which is part of a national series taking place in six states, is funded by the Art for Justice Fund, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Quentin Hancock Fund, and the Sacramento County Dispute Resolution Program.
This is a free event! Catered lunch and refreshments provided.
