Performance: Words Uncaged
April 29, 2017 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
LOS ANGELES – WORDS UNCAGED is a creative, interactive, exhibit for incarcerated artists, writers, students and poets at California State Prison, Lancaster, to dialogue, and critically engage with you. We invite you to experience these voices, uncaged from the prison walls, and to imagine new ways of understanding our current system of mass incarceration in California, as well as alternatives to it—together. This event celebrates the publication of the inaugural WordsUncaged Arts & Literary Journal from California State Prison, Lancaster. It features original artwork, writing, poetry and sculptures, an altar to light a candle for your incarcerated loved one, as well as portraits of men at California State Prison, Lancaster by photographer F. Scott Schafer, as well as portraits of family members of the incarcerated by Sister Inmate. We will be offering a number of special events, lectures, and concerts to expand awareness of prison and prisoners, and to explore our common humanity, creatively—together.
