CALL FOR PRESENTERS

The conference will bring together activists, organizers, scholars, academics, and members of the public who are working on issues related to prison abolition to discuss how we can connect our struggles, build power and develop strategy to create a world beyond prisons. We are renewing our desire to include voices of formerly or currently incarcerated community, for our lives are built upon the resistance of our ancestors and are haunted by the unchanging root sources of colonial power: the militarized occupation of stolen lands and the racialized labor that was forced to work them. Contributions can take the form of workshops, presentation, or artworks and performances.

We strongly encourage contributions from artists, particularly those currently or formerly imprisoned, and artwork that expresses experiences of and interactions with the penal system and its effects. We encourage artists to use any medium of their choosing – visual arts, applied design, music, performance, poetry or any form of writing, and more. There will be a gallery show and performance space will available.

This conference is especially interested in presentations in the manner of a (1) panel, (2) workshop or (3) roundtable on the topics such as:
