CWYTE Presents: “Swallowing the Moon”

Based on the experiences of three members of the Community Works Youth Theater Ensemble, “Swallowing the Moon” is a brave, bold look at the effects of trauma on two children of incarcerated parents. More than that, it is a story about connection in the face of adversity, and how, for some, art can actually be the only way out of the pain.

The Sentence Unseen: Celebrating Resilience

We pay a high price when our loved ones are entangled in a punitive justice system that often leads to incarceration. The Sentence Unseen bears witness to the impacts of the US criminal justice system when family members are taken away from our community. The exhibit sheds light on the collateral consequences of arrest and incarceration on children, youth, families, and communities while celebrating the heart and resiliency of those impacted.
