Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network (AIYN) and New York based Carnegie Hall lead Create Justice: A National Discussion on Arts and Justice, the first national initiative focused exclusively on the intersection of arts and juvenile justice. A series of three Create Justice forums will bring together thought leaders, artists, representatives from non-profit and government agencies, and policymakers from across the U.S. with the aim of developing collective impact strategies to help our most at-risk children reach their full potential through opportunities in the arts.

The series of forums will begin on March 23 and 24, 2017 at Carnegie Hall, continue on September 25 and 26, 2017 in Los Angeles, and conclude in March 2018, with a culminating event at Carnegie Hall.

“The Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network is a collaborative effort among 10 member organizations. We believe deeply that collaboration, sharing of knowledge, perspective, and expertise is the strongest, most effective way to tackle complex challenges. Supporting this kind of cross-country, cross-sector conversation—grounded in the power of the arts—is exciting for us, and I believe that it speaks to a hunger for connection in this emerging field.”
