Prisoner Advocacy and Activism Resources - Series

I came across this resource which landed in my inbox as a google alert for a Blues film screening which pairs a famous Canadian blues artist with Angola State prisoners.  

 Music from the big house

 Interested in a screening in your town? 

Music from the Big House is part of a coalition based in the States with a focus on bringing the arts and educational opportunity to prisoners, as well as networking with others doing the same.  

 The Prison Arts Coaltion 
Check out the "Programs" page at Prison Arts.  It lists hundreds of prison arts, and prison education programmes across the US, some of which have been transplanted here to Canada, including the "Inside-Out" education exchange programme.
