"Scars and Bars" is our 10-week prison program of music and art therapy designed to delve into the underlying origins of incarceration
and harmful actions, with the goal of charting a fresh trajectory towards a renewed life journey. Participants engage in creative writing, critical
thinking exercises, public speaking and performance, problem solving, artistic expression, and music and art-based therapy.
