The Gallery at Queen’s Park presents:
A.R.T. & Justice – “Pause; a Showcase of Presence”
To “Pause” is to access the safety of quiet before continuing on your journey. We pause before processing our emotions and suspending our realities through art in prison and on parole. Come honour the artistic creation of currently and previously incarcerated people at The Galley at Queen’s Park, New Westminster. 
ART & Justice is a partnership between researchers at the UBC School of Nursing, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC), and a network of Indigenous Elders, Peer Experts with lived experience of incarceration, and community activists and artists passionate about prison justice. Our mandate is to support the holistic mental health, wellbeing and dignity of people in prison through arts-based, Indigenous-guided community building. We aim to explore ways to improve and sustain the positive impacts of art and creative writing for incarcerated people, remain responsive to artist and storyteller needs throughout and following the pandemic, and collaboratively imagine additional ways to harness the power of storytelling for social change.
