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.

"WPA envisions a community where our reliance on incarceration as a default response to harm has been replaced by constructive, community-driven, and community-enhancing responses."
