WPA Arts

WPA Arts cultivates safe spaces where women can find sisterhood, relief and liberation as they reflect on their personal experiences and connect to their inner artist. Through regular workshops with staff and mentor artists, women at any stage of criminal systems involvement are encouraged to experiment with a wide range of materials and ideas. WPA Arts transforms jail cells and shelter walls into galleries of self-expression. As women open up, their needs are shared and WPA is there to meet them.

"My children had been in foster care for two years; they were angry and hurt. WPA helped us to heal and to build a new, strong family bond."
