Arts in Corrections NYS

All Disciplines
Organization Wave Farm
Deadline January 31, 2023

Arts in Corrections NYS will facilitate and support arts programming inside approximately 10 NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (NYS DOCCS) and participating Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) facilities across New York State. In partnership with visiting artists, non-profit organizations will design and facilitate a series of 12-week, in-person workshops, providing system-impacted individuals with once-a-week programming in a variety of disciplines including the visual arts, electronic media/film, music, and literature. Each workshop series will culminate in a celebratory event inside the facility granting participants the opportunity to share their work. Additionally, with permissions secured, there will be opportunities to share work externally through an Arts in Corrections NYS website and or exhibition/public program.
