From artsinprison.org:

Arts in Prison provides opportunities for inmates to prove that they are more than the sum of their crimes. By providing arts education and experiences for inmates in Kansas state prisons and detention centers, these members of society, who have been locked away and often forgotten, are given a chance for self-reflection and an opportunity to create something beautiful. Whether it is a song, a stage performance, a photograph or a painting, they have created something that brings joy to others.

A positive experience allows an incarcerated person to begin to have hope and hope is what allows them to believe that they will get out of prison and that they will lead positive and productive lives on the outside.

The recidivism rate among former East Hill Singers, our longest running program, is 18% as compared to 32% for the state of Kansas and greater than 50% for the United States.

Arts in Prison is about inspiring and motivating positive change in the incarcerated.
