Event Reimagine Our Communities: Poetry, Poster Making, and Prison Abolition

Reimagine Our Communities: Poetry, Poster Making, and Prison Abolition

Workshop

20 May 2023
10.00AM–4.00PM

Prison abolition requires us to reimagine our communities without relying on policing, prisons, and punishment, creating a more just, equitable, and compassionate world rooted in principles of care and collective liberty.

Join Meanjin-based artists and prison abolitionists Boneta-Marie Mabo and Ruby Wharton to reimagine our communities through creative approaches to poetry, poster making, and prison abolition.

Free and open to all, this drop-in workshop accompanies the socially engaged exhibition You’ll Know It When You Feel It. The IMA Courtyard will be activated with a new banner made by women and girls supported by prison-advocacy organisation Sisters Inside Inc.
