     One of the “Living Through Creativity” resource guides planned for the coming year will focus on the role of the arts in rehabilitating prisoners. I have shared several projects in earlier posts; today’s blog introduces the very important partnership in California that offers ideas for all of us. Kudos to the California Arts Council and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Thanks to station KCET for the information.

Read…Reflect…Share!

“By introducing prison inmates to everything from drama to dance through the innovative Arts-in-Corrections program, the California Arts Council and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation hope to aid rehabilitation, combat recidivism and foster safer conditions behind bars.”
