Courtney Bowles
(1) by Mark Strandquist

Courtney Bowles is an artist, educator, and community organizer who uses art as a vehicle for connecting diverse communities to build empathy and support for social justice movements. She is the co-director of the Philadelphia Reentry Think Tank and The People's Paper Co-op, an ongoing initiative of The Village of Arts & Humanities that connects individuals in reentry with artists, civil rights lawyers, and many others, to run a multitude of programs and initiatives.

At the core of her practice is the belief that those most impacted by systemic social issues are the experts society needs to listen to, and that by connecting those directly affected with a multitude of community experts and political stakeholders, change can be created on personal and systemic levels.
