In a rare opportunity, Making Me Whole. Prison, Art & Healing takes the viewer inside prison walls to hear and see firsthand from women and men about the influence Bridging Boundaries has had on them. The footage also sheds light on the struggles that children with incarcerated parents face, and how the Judy Dworin Performance Project (JDPP), in partnership with social workers, helps them navigate their way using the arts to deal with their most often tightly held secret. The 30-minute documentary, filmed as a partnership production with CPTV, features the JDPP’s community partners articulating the value and significance of these programs, and the powerful transformations that come from continued support to those returning to our communities. This project was funded in part by a distinguished national grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and Mid-America Arts Alliance. The Judy Dworin Performance Project was one of 6 organizations in the country to be selected for this award.
Please join us for a talkback after the film with Judy Dworin ’71 and Robin Cullen, a returning citizen who is now a JDPP teaching artist and on the Board of Directors.
There is no charge for this event.
