California Lawyers for the Arts (CLA) presented its second national conference, “Arts in Corrections: Building Bridges to the Future,” in collaboration with the William James Association and Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles from June 25-30, 2017. A total of 262 persons from 23 states and the United Kingdom participated in this professional development conference for arts organizations and artists who provide arts education for persons confined in correctional institutions and for those re-entering society. Campus housing and meals also provided a supportive environment for much needed mutual support and networking for this community of artists who often work in isolation in intense situations. In addition to stimulating keynote speakers, the conference showcased best practices from the field, including curriculum development and evaluation, provided opportunities for small groups to discuss discipline-specific and venue-specific issues, and offered art classes with 21 master artists. Please see the attached program guide for a complete list of activities and presenters' biographies as well as the separate course catalog that describes the master art classes.
