The CAC is excited to present Inter[SECTOR], online conversations bringing together artists, activists, and policy-makers to discuss critical issues facing society today.
Join us for the next conversation in our Inter[SECTOR]: Decarceration and the Arts series on Facebook Live, featuring Jo Kreiter (Artistic Director of Flyaway Productions), and Syrita Steib, criminal justice advocate and Executive Director and Cofounder of Operation Restoration. The discussion will explore the intersections between art, artists ,and activists in the work to advocate for those impacted by mass incarceration through Steib's own advocacy work, the implications of her recent presidential pardon, and her role as co-curator of the Per(Sister) exhibition formerly at Tulane’s Newcomb Art Museum. The conversation will be moderated by Kaisas Peguero, CAC’s Program Manager.
About Decarceration and the Arts
Decarceration and the Arts is an ongoing conversation series with San Francisco-based artist Jo Kreiter, Artist Director of Flyaway Productions and creator of the "The Wait Room", a spectacular aerial work that depicts the trauma and challenges faced by families with incarcerated loved ones, which will be presented at the CAC in 2021. In an effort to build community dialogue ahead of the performance, Jo engages with local and national artists and activists on the front lines of ending mass incarceration.
