The Art of Return

SUN // JUN 23 // 03:30PM

The Art of Return is a unique live event dedicated to the journeys and creativity of formerly incarcerated people. Created and produced in collaboration with the community, each show features formerly incarcerated and justice-involved artists sharing their work, from poetry to music to film and beyond.

We've spent the last four AORs showing you how the system fails. For June's event, we're doing something different: We're showing you what's working. Through music, dialogue, and a live healing circle, How Our Lives Link Altogether! (H.O.L.L.A!)’s Youth Organizing Collective will take the audience on a journey through healing justice, a growing alternative to punishment and incarceration. It's going to challenge your ideas about power, journalism, and justice. 

In the space between between the walls and the world is The Art of Return.

Doors 3:30 PM, show 4:00 PM.
Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
This event is mixed seated and standing room. Seats are first-come, first-served.
REFUND POLICY: Tickets may be refunded up to 24 hours before the event. Within 24 hours we may take exchanges for other events at our discretion. No refunds after the event.
