Shaping a Future: Life After Prison - Part 2

On Sunday, October 29th 2017 nine individuals told their stories in a performance titled: Shaping a Future: Life After Prison. The performance was a culmination of  writing workshops sponsored by the Regional Arts and Culture Council. The project conceived of and organized by writing teacher, Carol Imani. The performance was held at the First Unitarian Church in downtown Portland and was directed by Chris Karczmar.

Part two will feature the second of the nine monologues as well as an interview with the author, Dawn.
