Prisoner Justice Day: ART and/in MIGRANT DETENTION
For Prisoner Justice Day 2014, we will be honouring creative resistance in immigration detention through dialogue, screen-printing and letter-writing.
Sunday, August 10, 2014
227 Sterling Street, #103
We will share experiences of anti-detentions and anti-prison organizing for the past decade to the present, and centring art as an organizing tool and art-making as a transformative practice. We will also see a preview of the forthcoming graphic novel Undocumented: The Architecture of Migrant Detention, which will be launched in Toronto in the lead up to with the 1-year anniversary of the historic mass hunger strike among detainees in Lindsay, Ontario's Central East Correctional Centre. The evening will conclude with a hands-on printmaking session of postcards written to detainees in Lindsay's prison.
Prison abolition must be part of migrant justice and anti-borders work. Together, we must tear all fences down!
This event is FREE.
Proceeds from the sales of a newly launched calendar will go towards a commissary funds for detainees in Lindsay prison.
ACCESSIBILITY: The space does not have wheelchair accessible bathrooms.
This event is organized independently by members of justseeds Artists' Cooperative, End Immigration Detention Network, and No One Is Illegal - Toronto.
