Ashley Bryan will be joined by Maine Inside Out, giving a performance and discussion by formerly incarcerated youth.
Maine Inside Out collaborates with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people to create and share original theater, inside and outside correctional facilities, in order to help engage the community in dialogue and inspire a shift from our current paradigm of isolation and punishment to one of restorative justice, connection, and healing.
MIO has facilitated programs at Long Creek Youth Development Center Long Creek in South Portland, the former Women’s Reentry Center in Bangor, Learning Works in Portland, and Portland High School.
They currently provide ongoing programming at Long Creek, and have recently spearheaded the development of the Southern Maine Re-Entry Coalition, a group of community stakeholders working to help support the transition of released offenders re-entering the community.
