“Murals send a collective message about who we are. Painting creates respite. Theater allows people to get out of their own heads. Singing lowers stress. The arts make us confident, hopeful, and resilient. Based on decades of research and experience, we know that investing in the arts allows communities to thrive.”
The Center for Court Innovation gathered artists and organizations for a candid discussion, which was facilitated by our Art for Justice’s project director Helena Huang, about the various ways arts can help us achieve justice. You can watch the panel – featuring Ana Bermúdez from the New York City Department of Probation, Pastor Isaac Scott from The Confined Arts, artist and facilitator Sophia Dawson, and Amy Ellenbogen from the Center of Court Innovation – on their website.
