Future IDs is a multi-year, social art project about individual stories of transformation and how those stories collectively can help reframe the narrative of re-entry. It comprises art/future planning workshops, exhibitions and public programs across California, building towards an arts-based public service campaign. The central idea is for returning citizens to create new identification cards for future selves -- perhaps for a dream job, a role in society, or a continuing role with family, such as father or mother.
Designed in collaboration with the Anti-Recidivism Coalition (ARC), this multi-year social art project considers life beyond incarceration for returning citizens. By envisioning new identification cards for future returning citizens, this project aims at the development of an ongoing arts-based public service campaign focused on impacting more humane sentencing laws and prison college programs.
