2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Courtney Bowles will organize a Think Tank of returning citizens, incarcerated individuals, artists, activists, and legislative experts who will work to create a Poetic Bill of Rights for Returning Citizens, a People's Reentry Platform, and a project newspaper filled with art and advocacy materials made by Think Tank Fellows. As materials are created, a People's Assembly will be held at City Hall, featuring a large installation of the Think Tank's art and advocacy materials, and a press conference where Think Tank members will publicly perform the “Poetic Bill of Rights for Returning Citizens." Fellows will also deliver the platform, a legislative proposal drafted from the feedback of legal clinic participants across the city.

DE-CODED: Art + Tech for Social Change

Leeway Foundation hosts the May Live Culture event at PhillyCAM! Live Culture is an open house and live TV production that happens on the first Friday of every month, curated by different arts and culture organizations. Since it’s Philly Tech Week, we’re focusing on local artists who utilize new media and technology to build alternate landscapes at the intersections of art and social change. Featuring presentations and conversations with poet and digital artist Andrea Walls (ACG ’14) and independent filmmaker M. Asli Dukan (ACG ’16, ’14, LTA ’16), we'll explore and answer questions like, How has technology enabled you to express an idea that couldn't have been conveyed otherwise? What conversations aren't happening in the space of creative technology?
