The Mural Arts Program is excited to be hosting the Arts in Criminal Justice National Conference this October 3rd through 6th. Registration is now available on-line at the Arts in Criminal Justice Conference website. This exciting Conference will convene over 200 artists, activists, nonprofit professionals, prison officials, judges, and policy makers on the subject of art in criminal justice. Participants will discuss successful programs from around the country, analyze the power of art to further the goals of restorative justice, and address the multiple challenges inherent in this work. MAP looks forward to sharing its successful models using mural-making and art creation as tools for crime deterrence and reparation through its mural programs in the Philadelphia and Pennsylvania prison systems, detention centers, alternative sentencing programs, and schools.
