Jane Addams Hull-House Museum
800 South Halsted Street
Come share food and drink, and help us build a resource library at Stateville Prison for the Prison-Neighborhood Arts Project. Bring your new and gently used books to donate to the library. Dictionaries and thesaurus are especially needed. Learn more about P-NAP, how to get involved and how you can support the project. At 6:30pm teachers and guest lectures will talk about their experiences working with artists and students at Stateville.
Prison-Neighborhood Arts Project is a visual and literary arts initiative that connects teaching artists and scholars to men at Stateville Prison through classes, workshops and guest lectures. Building on the work of Dr. Margaret Burroughs, who taught art and writing at Stateville Prison, P-NAP instructors started offering classes in the fall of 2012. An exhibition and reading of student work will take place in the spring of 2013.
The Arts have always provided a unique vocabulary for discussing challenging topics and pushing the boundaries of our thinking. The goal of P-NAP is to foster this kind of exploratory thinking with students at Stateville Prison, who have a wealth of knowledge and keen perspectives about the world around us.
