We are excited to announce that we will be participating in this year's Arts in Action Festival! Cfj staff will be speaking on panels on Sunday and our Right/Write to Heal group will participate in the final performance on Monday night.
Hosted by Broadway Advocacy Coalition, the second annual Arts in Action Festival is the premier space for organizations and individuals working at the intersections of arts and advocacy to come together to showcase their work, explore opportunities for collaboration, celebrate the resilience of the justice-impacted community, and focus the city’s attention on the many ways that the “justice” system is failing to actually create justice for so many inhabitants of New York City.
In its second year, the festival will include workshops, performances, screenings, panels, tabling from multiple NYC arts advocacy organizations and exhibits that will allow participants and organizations to experience the power of art and storytelling as a tool for creating more humane policies and systems. This year’s festival - themed “Envisioning the Possible” - will provide a space to demonstrate the role that art can play in imagining and constructing the possible just future ahead.
