The Reentry Arts Connection is a nonprofit organization that believes strongly in the power of creative expression as a source of healing and restoration. Their mission is to provide support for justice involved individuals and to connect them with the restorative power of creativity. Staff and volunteers operate under the mentality that creative expression is an outlet through which historically underserved community members like those with criminal convictions can tell their stories, voice their traumas and establish themselves as valuable members in the community. Because all individuals have different ways of expressing themselves, Reentry Arts Connection offers programming in numerous arts: performance art, creative writing and literacy, media arts, dance, theater, and arts entrepreneurship. Through these programs, formerly incarcerated individuals learn how to channel their experiences into creative, positive and impactful pieces that connect them with the community around them.
