2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Rachel will develop and pilot an eight-week writers workshop with incarcerated women at the Federal Detention Center in downtown Philadelphia. This non-hierarchical writing group will foster creative expression, critical thinking and community building as the writers respond to writing prompts drawn from published poems, memoirs, manifestos, etc. by incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people. Rachel hopes to continue the writing group past the pilot stage and to eventually work with the women in the group to create a publication of their writings that they can share with their communities on re-entry.
