Arts and the Inside: Incarceration and Expression through Writing, Film, and Dance


Saturday, April 2, 2016
11:00 am - 5:00 pm


This day-long event will explore the world of mass incarceration through readings, film, dance, and panels. The day will include a talk by Ted Conover, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Newjack: Guarding Sing Sing, which chronicles Conover’s year as a guard in one of America’s most notorious prisons. Film producer Judith Katz will lead a discussion following a screening of What I Want My Words To Do To You, a documentary about a writing class taught by Vagina Monologues’ Eve Ensler in a maximum security prison. Audiences will also get to hear from Sarah Lawrence’s own prison writing workshop programs “Right to Write” and “Voices Unbroken.” The day will conclude with excerpts from In My Shoes, dance and spoken word performances by women released from the York Correctional Facility, who ask the audience to experience incarceration.
