What happens when a person is wrongfully convicted? What if we can tell the story of this injustice through performance and theater and bring about change? This panel discussion will address the power of political performance made within prison systems and the people impacted by unjust incarceration practices. The panel will address how performance and art-making can lead to social justice advocacy and policy change.
