Panel Discussion: Right of Return


Right of Return: Building a Movement of Formerly Incarcerated Artists. Our panel will feature artists and founders of the Right of Return fellowship, the first national fellowship dedicated to supporting formerly incarcerated artists. Topics discussed will include the movement to activate art to end mass incarceration, largely through the leadership of system-impacted people to build structures and resources to support each other through residencies, exhibitions, and other creative and professional development opportunities. Panelists include activists working at the intersection of art and abolition, including Mary Enoch Elizabeth Baxter, Russell Craig, Jesse Krimes, Jared Owens, Gilberto Rivera Reyes, and moderated by Dr. Nicole R. Fleetwood.
