The Judy Dworin Performance Project's Bridging the Inside and Out: Arts, Prison and Social Service will involve four residencies and employ video documentary to demonstrate and accentuate transformational impacts from its collective work with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals, their children and families, prison staff, teaching artists, partnering social work staff, and students (taking a class in human rights studies) at Trinity College. There are plans to show the documentary on local public television. The program partner Community Partners in Action focuses on behavioral change and advocates for criminal justice reform for adults and youth in Connecticut. This project is one of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Creativity Connects grantees.
