Artist Profile: A.R.T & Justice

Abstract shapes in bright colours create the face of a bird. The focal point is a large yellow eye.

To “pause” is to access the safety of quiet before continuing on your journey.

A.R.T. (Action Reciprocity & Transformation) & Justice is a partnership between researchers at the UBC School of Nursing, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC), and a network of Indigenous Elders, Peer Experts with lived experience of incarceration, and community activists and artists passionate about prison justice.

Their mandate is to support the holistic mental health, well being and dignity of people in prison through arts-based, Indigenous-guided community building.

They aim to explore ways to improve and sustain the positive impacts of art and creative writing for incarcerated people, remain responsive to artist and storyteller needs throughout and following the pandemic, and collaboratively imagine additional ways to harness the power of storytelling for social change.

You can learn more about A.R.T & Justice on their website.

Or stop by the Gallery at Queen’s Park to see the exhibition, on until June 2.
