Keeping the Faith—the Prison Project is an integrated arts program conducted by the Pat Graney Company at the Washington Corrections Center for Women. Initiated in 1995, the program consists of movement, writing, American Sign Language and visual arts workshops and culminates in a performance by institution residents and for the outside community. Keeping the Faith creates a rare forum for cultural development among incarcerated women by facilitating the exploration and expression of both individual and collective identity.
This internship provides an opportunity for emerging artists interested in interdisciplinary, performative, and community-based arts, specifically in working with incarcerated women. The intern will work alongside professional artists, gaining valuable experience while learning to activate the transformative power of the arts in oppressive spaces.
