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.
