Presented by Vanderbilt Divinity School at Unknown

Mar 24 - 25 2017
Art, Advocacy,and Action: The Call

Art is a powerful tool for reflecting hard truths, redeeming pain, visioning new possibilities, and pointing the way to justice. Join artists and activists to explore radical possibilities for a world without a prison industrial complex through community work, organizing, art, healing, and more. Workshops will focus on destroying/divesting and inventing/investing, covering topics such as racist policing in Nashville, women & prisons, ICE & immigration, and restorative justice in K-12.
