CENTER FOR DECARCERATED FUTURES
Juvenile Justice Arts Initiative (JJAI) is an emergent arts and media network that supports the creative freedom of young incarcerated artists through mentorship and the cultivation of identity, agency, and community. We foster adaptive platforms that visualize the end of human captivity through diverse art initiatives that build bridges to the world outside.
The JJAI community comprises artists, students, educators, mental health specialists, activists, and formerly incarcerated youth. We work with trusted partners in our network to help deinstitutionalize the institutionalized.
We believe creativity is the path to a decarcerated future. ︎︎︎
