Transforming Our Culture of Incarceration: How is Rochester a Prison Town?

This symposium presents a series of discussions with scholars, artists, activists, practitioners, citizens, and storytellers to collectively rethink how to transform prison and jail systems in and around Rochester, and how they shape everyday life.

The afternoon event will present emerging findings from our research projects, presented as an interactive gallery exhibit ongoing for the duration of the symposium in a variety of formats–from art installations to websites to poster presentation. This exhibit will be combined with two panel discussions by people working in related areas to share experiences with us and each other–which we are visualizing as a way for scholars, activists, and neighbors to think critically and creatively together on these issues.

Friday, April 26, 2019 at 1:00pm to 6:00pm
