The John Howard Society of Canada’s
Arts Inside and Out Project

The Arts Inside and Out Project is a social enterprise to forge understanding and pathways for prisoners to become contributing members of their communities through their art work. The beauty, pain, and even humour reflected in their art reminds us that those confined in prisons are fellow human beings capable of reflection and transformation.

It is the hope of the John Howard Society that this social enterprise will eventually result in prison programs that cultivate artistic talent, convey marketable skills like framing and print making, and support the successful reintegration of prisoners through the recognition and development of their artistic talent. The John Howard Society of Canada believes that supporting artistic talent can change lives for the better: Community members who are moved by the art work of prisoners can begin to think differently about the artists; and prisoners whose art work is appreciated by community members begin to think differently about their ability to contribute positively in their communities. This enhanced understanding can lead to important transformations that will make our communities stronger and safer.
