To expand our communications during the Covid-19 pandemic, Prison Arts Collective created Outside:Inside Productions, which includes instructional videos in art and creative wellness and a series of radio interviews with artists, writers, and musicians who are formerly incarcerated. Outside:Inside Video includes a series of videos that have been approved to play for participants in all 33 correctional institutions and are also available to the public on our website and on youtube. Outside:Inside Radio showcases artists whose lives have been impacted by incarceration. Guest artists share their personal journeys and advocate for the transformative power of the arts as a human right. The radio show airs on KSPC on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. and Fridays at 9:00 a.m., and are also uploaded to "Outside:Inside Radio" on Spotify and Thanks to everyone at Arts in Corrections, a partnership of the Art Council and California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, for their awesome ongoing support!
