A Blade of Grass Fellow for Socially Engaged Art
Hidden Voices is a collective that reorients the personal stories and experiences of marginalized people to positions of visibility and impact. Through workshops, dialogue, and deep listening informed by restorative justice, Hidden Voices seeks to create real, empathetic connections within communities that will lead to change. The collective was selected for their plans to develop a music theater titled A GOOD BOY, which explores the impact of America’s Death Row on family members, and asks how their stories can help us create a more compassionate society. Hidden Voices positions Death Row is an extreme microcosm of our over-incarcerated nation, where we rarely think of those we execute, much less their families.
