The Michigan Art for Justice Forum is a day-long symposium that brings together elected leaders, artists, justice reform advocates, arts organizations, returned citizens and survivors to imagine new ways to reduce mass incarceration and strengthen communities through the arts.
The day features two plenary panel discussions and small-group facilitated dialogues designed to strengthen coordinated action in Michigan by the individual participants and the organizations represented at the Forum.
