Supporting creative work by women
“This is art giving people tools with which they can change their lives and head in new directions.” — Kate Powers, 2AMt blog
Kate volunteers with Rehabilitation Through Arts, an arts in prisons program begun by Katherine Vockins nearly 15 years ago, at Sing Sing prison. The program has since branched out to four other facilities in New York state. The prisoners have performed work by Suzan-Lori Parks, Sophocles, Shakespeare, and August Wilson.
Check out what else Kate has to say about the program and its impact here. Just another fine example of women making a difference in the world through theater.
